So I looked, and there was a Lamb, slaughtered but standing tall. He came to the One Seated on the Throne and took the scroll from his right hand. The moment he took the scroll, [the heavenly hosts] fell down and worshiped the Lamb. And they sang a new song:
Worthy! Take the scroll, open its seals.
Slain! Paying in blood, you bought men and women,
Bought them back from all over the earth,
Bought them back for God.
I looked again. I heard a company of Angels around the Throne, ten thousand times ten thousand their number, thousand after thousand after thousand in full song:
The slain Lamb is worthy!
Take the power, the wealth, the wisdom, the strength!
Take the honor, the glory, the blessing!
Then I heard every creature in Heaven and earth, in underworld and sea, join in, all voices in all places, singing:
To the One on the Throne! To the Lamb!
The blessing, the honor, the glory, the strength,
For age after age after age.
