YOU are worthy, O Lord, to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing.
Blessed be Your glorious Name.
For Your good soldiers in every age, striving lawfully, enduring to the end,
For the wisdom of doctors,
The zeal of evangelists,
The eloquence of prophets,
The love of pastors,
For the praises of babes, the ministry of women,
The purity of the young, the fervor of the aged,
For all the signs of Your Presence,
All the marks of Your Cross,
All glory be to You.
For the light of Your everlasting Gospel,
Sent to every nation and kindred, and tongue and people,
Shining so long amongst ourselves;
For Your Church, the pillar and ground of the truth,
Against which the gates of hell have not prevailed;
For Your gracious word of promise That they that be wise shall shine As the brightness of the firmament,
And they that turn many to righteousness As the stars for ever and ever,
All praise, all glory Be to You.
The Lord is gracious and merciful, Longsuffering, and of great goodness.
The Lord is loving to every man,
And His mercy is over all His works.
All Your works praise You, O Lord,
And Your Saints give thanks to You.
They show the glory of Your kingdom,
And talk of Your power,
That Your power, Your glory, and mightiness of Your kingdom,
Might be known to men.
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
And Your dominion endures throughout all ages.
Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty;
Just and true are Your ways, You King of Saints.
Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your Name?
For You only are holy;
For all nations shall come and worship before You;
For Your judgments are made manifest.
After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, Which no man could number,
Of all nations and kindred’s, and people and tongues,
Stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, Clothed with white robes,
And palms in their hands;
And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God, Which sits upon the throne,
And to the Lamb,
For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
