You are Worthy

Description

Revelation chapter 5 gives us a glimpse into what is in store for us in heaven. We see the Lord Jesus as the Lamb who is worthy to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing. (Revalation 5:12) This song reminds us of why Jesus is worthy - because of who He is. He is our prophet, priest, and king, the Lord of lords and sun of righteousness. He is our peace, our sacrifice, and our all-in-all, and will one day be our true glory-crown as we worship Him forever in heaven.

Lyrics

I've found the pearl of greatest price,
My heart now sings for joy;
And praise I must, for Christ is mine,
Christ will my song employ.

He is my Prophet, Priest, and King;
My Prophet full of light,
My great High Priest before the throne,
My King of heav'nly might.

Chorus:
You are worthy (echo),
O Lamb of God (echo),
That every knee (echo)
Should bow to You (echo):
You are worthy (echo).

For He is truly Lord of lords,
And He the King of kings;
He is the Sun of Righteousness
With healing in His wings.

Christ is my peace; He died for me,
For me He gave His blood;
As my atoning sacrifice,
Offered Himself to God.

Christ Jesus is my All-in-all,
My comfort and my love,
My life below; and He will be
My glory-crown above.

Words by John Mason (1646-94). Music by David L. Ward.
