Morning Canticle

18    A Song to the Lamb    Dignus es 
Revelation 4:11, 5:9-10, 13

Splendor and honor and kingly power * 
    are yours by right, O Lord our God, 
For you created everything that is, * 
    and by your will they were created and have their being; 

And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain, * 
    for with your blood you have redeemed for God, 
From every family, language, people, and nation, * 
    a kingdom of priests to serve our God.

And so, to him who sits upon the throne, * 
    and to Christ the Lamb, 
Be worship and praise, dominion and splendor, * 
    for ever and for evermore.
