Scripture: Revelation 5:6-14

ESV Text: Revelation 5:6-14


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 5

     6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. 7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. 8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. 11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; 12 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. 13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. 14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.(KJV)

1. Hark! the herald angels sing, 
“Glory to the new-born King; 
Peace on earth and mercy mild, 
God and sinners reconciled!” 
Joyful, all ye nations, rise, 
Join the triumph of the skies; 
With the angelic host proclaim. 
“Christ is born in Bethlehem!” 
Hark! the herald angels sing, 
“Glory to the new-born King!” 

2. Christ, by highest heaven adored. 
Christ, the everlasting Lord, 
Late in time behold Him come, 
Offspring of a virgin’s womb. 
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see, 
Hail the incarnate Deity! 
Pleased as Man with man to dwell; 
Jesus, our Immanuel! 
Hark! the herald angels sing, 
“Glory to the new-born King!” 

3. Hail, the heavenly Prince of Peace! 
Hail, the Sun of Righteousness! 
Light and life to all He brings, 
Risen with healing in His wings. 
Mild He leaves His throne on high, 
Born that man no more may die; 
Born to raise the sons of earth; 
Born to give them second birth. 
Hark! the herald angels sing, 
“Glory to the new-born King!” 

4. Come, Desire of nations, come, 
Fix in us Thy humble home; 
Oh, to all Thyself impart, 
Formed in each believing heart! 
Hark! the herald angels sing, 
“Glory to the new-born King; 
Peace on earth and mercy mild, 
God and sinners reconciled!” 
Hark! the herald angels sing, 
“Glory to the new-born King!”
