COME HEAR THE ANGELS SING

  Lyrics

Verse 1
Come hear the angels sing
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain
Gathering round the throne
Hail the Son of Man
Hail the Son of Man
Not for their sin he died
It was no angel crucified
And yet they hold him in their sight
And live to praise their Lord

Verse 2
Come hear the elders sing
As they fall in praise to the Lamb
Bowing before the throne
Laying down their crowns
Laying down their crowns
They praise him for his blood
With which he purchased men for God
They praise the Saviour of the world
The Lamb, he is their Lord

Chorus
Hear the heavens shout
Worthy is the Lamb
All creation bows
Giving glory to the Lamb
Worthy is the Lamb

Verse 3
What is the song we’ll sing
As we join in heaven with our God
A people from every land
Crowding round the Lamb
Crowding round the Lamb
We’ll sing salvation’s song
How many million voices strong
We’ll sing the glory of our King
Of Jesus Christ our Lord

  Sample Introduction

Revelation 5 gives us a stunning picture of Jesus on the throne through John’s vision:

“Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, ‘Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honour and glory and blessing!’ And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, ‘To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honour and glory and might forever and ever!’”

Let us praise and glorify the Lamb in this next song as we long for the day that we will join the multitude around the throne.
