Into the throne room, their praises pour
Seraphim and cherubim and angels galore
Sweet voices are carried along emerald rays
Resounding, surrounding, the Ancient of Days
One mighty angel asks, in his strong loud voice
‘Who is the Worthy One, in whom we rejoice?
He is the Root of David, who breaks seven seals
The Lion of Judah, before whom all heaven kneels.’
‘For He is worthy!’ hear the rising new song
‘To the glorious Lamb of God, we now belong!’
And the prayers of His people, mingle with angelic tone
As another finds salvation and his spiritual home
Redeemed ones see His face, their foreheads bear His name
It was for this spotless bride, His beloved, that He came
He made open the way, to that eternal Tree of Life
And flung wide the gates, to the great City of Light.
