1. Glory to God on high!
Let earth and skies reply;
Praise ye His name:
His love and grace adore,
Who all our sorrows bore;
Sing aloud evermore,
Worthy the Lamb.

2. Jesus, our Lord and God,
Bore sin’s tremendous load,
Praise ye His name:
Tell what His arm hath done,
What spoils from death He won,
Sing His great name alone;
Worthy the Lamb.

3. While they around the throne
Cheerfully join in one,
Praising His name:
Those who have felt His blood
Sealing their peace with God,
Sound His dear fame abroad,
Worthy the Lamb.

4. Join, all ye ransomed race,
Our holy Lord to bless;
Praise ye His name:
In Him we will rejoice,
And make a joyful noise,
Shouting with heart and voice,
Worthy the Lamb.

5. What though we change our place,
Yet we shall never cease
Praising His name:
To Him our songs we bring,
Hail Him, our gracious King,
And without ceasing sing,
Worthy the Lamb.

6. Then let the hosts above,
In realms of endless love,
Praise His dear name:
To Him ascribed be
Honour and majesty,
Through all eternity:
Worthy the Lamb.
