See there the slaughtered Lamb

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!” (Revelation 5:12)

See there the slaughtered Lamb
who sits upon his throne.
The King of nations, slain,
has come into his own.

Bend every knee before
the slaughtered Lamb, our God.
Sing every tongue and more
in praise of Jesus’ blood.

The body of the Christ,
once dead, now glorified,
still bears his wounds and scars
who once was crucified.

Where streams of blood once flowed
now living waters run,
from once the death-dark tomb
now shines the risen Son.

His blood has bought our lives.
Sing hallelujah! Sing!
Behold the Lamb of God,
our resurrected King.

All praise the risen Lord!
All praise the slaughtered Lamb!
All praise the suff’ring Christ,
The crucified I Am!
