Worthy Is The Lamb

NEW Series | Worthy Is The Lamb

There are few pieces of music that can move the soul of a person than can ones that are taken directly from the Scriptures. While this piece of music and song is not a “hymn” per se, it is taken directly from the Word of God and is by NO means a beat oriented or originated declaration of worship. The verse of Scripture that is the basis for this Series is taken from Revelation 5:12 | KJV:

“Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.”
Revelation 5:12 | King James Version

My favorite edition of that piece is performed by the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. The lyric of the song is slightly modified from the standard edition written by Darlene Zschech to better suit a choir singing and giving reverence to the Lord. The modified edition follows:

Thank You for the Cross Lord
Thank You for the Price You Paid
Bearing All My Sin and Shame
In Love You Came and Gave Amazing Grace

Thank You for This Love Lord
Thank You for the Nail Pierced Hands
Washed Me in Your Cleansing Flow
Now All I Know Your Forgiveness and Embrace

Worthy is the Lamb
Seated on the Throne
We Crown You Now with Many Crowns
You reign victorious

High and Lifted Up
Jesus, Son of God
The Treasure of Heaven Crucified
Worthy is the Lamb
Worthy is the Lamb

Worthy To Receive

In taking a look at that specific verse, there are seven areas which the Lamb is Worthy to receive:

Power, Riches, Wisdom, Strength, Honour, Glory, Blessing

Those seven (7) areas belong to Him and are echoed in the 10 areas of Scripture utilized in this “Worthy Is The Lamb” Encouragement Series. Interesting how the perfect number of God is used in how many items He was Worthy to receive… Of the sixty-nine (69) verses researched for this Series, there are eight (8) that utilize the word “Worthy” and two (2) which speak of Jesus Christ as the Lamb of God and how Christ suffered for us, which rounds out the ten (10) which were used to build this set.

Indeed as Christians, you and I need to keep ever before us the many reasons that the Perfect Lamb of God is Worthy! As we remind ourselves, walking in light of the continued discoveries, others will be able to be a witness to the change in our lives, as we both serve as a verbal and character witness of His, as well as our willingness to share what our Saviour has done for us. When something is worthy of telling, we are usually first in line to want to share with others what that “worth” is – in this case, the Worth is Eternity and the Worthy is the Lamb who paid for it – for everyone who will Believe on Him.
