Behold the Lamb, with glory crowned!
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Behold the Lamb, with glory crowned!

"In the midst of the throne ... a Lamb as it had been slain." (Revelation 5,6)

1. Behold the Lamb, with glory crowned!
  To him all pow'r is giv'n;
no place too high for him is found,
  no place to high in heav'n.

2. He fills the throne, the throne above;
  he fills it without wrong;
the object he of angels' love,
  the theme of angels' song.

3. With faces veiled yon seraphs bright
  upon his glory gaze;
not seraphs could endure the light,
  the full resplendent blaze.

4. Though high, yet he accepts the praise
  his people offer here:
the faintest, feeblest cry they raise,
  will reach the Saviour's ear.

5. Well may his people then be found
  transported with the sight;
to see the Lamb with glory crowned,
  must yield them sweet delight.

6. This song be ours, and this alone,
  that celebrates the name
of him that sits upon the throne,
  and that exalts the Lamb.

7. To him whom men despise and slight,
  to him be glory giv'n:
the crown is his, and his by right,
  the highest place in heav'n.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 38.
