“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power” (Revelation 4:11).
Today we will quote the words of a worship hymn written by Miss F. T. Wigram, sometime before 1871.
Worthy of homage and of praise;
Worthy by all to be adored;
Exhaustless theme of heavenly lays!
Thou, Thou art worthy, Jesus, Lord.
Now seated on Jehovah’s throne,
The Lamb once slain in glory bright:
’Tis thence Thou watchest o’er Thine own,
Guarding us through the deadly fight.
To Thee, e’en now, our song we raise,
Though sure the tribute mean must prove;
No mortal tongue can tell Thy ways,
So full of life and light and love.
Yet, Saviour Thou shalt have full praise:
We soon shall meet Thee on the cloud,
We soon shall see Thee face to face,
In glory praising as we would.
