Forever worthy is Thy Lamb,
for He is truth and light.
Beautiful, beautiful are His ways.
Forever bless'd is He.
His is glory without end.
Beloved of God is He.
Cherubic angels sound His praise above,
Seraphic notes beyond his compare
sound His praise above.
Incorruptible, Jesus Christ our Lord was born.
My soul longeth to be like Thee.
Blory be to Thee.
Thou All in All.
