7932. Lamb Of God, Thy Right We Own

1 Lamb of God, Thy right we own;
Worthy Thou, and Thou alone,
The mysterious book t’explain
Teeming with the fates of man,
Thou shalt open every seal,
Every prophecy fulfill.

2 Power executive is Thine:
Prodigal of blood divine,
Thou hast dearly bought Thine own,
Laid the precious ransom down,
Given by Thy Father’s grace,
Slain for all our helpless race.

3 We who in Thy death confide,
Conscious of Thy blood applied,
Now the Gospel blessing prove,
Fruit of Thy redeeming love,
Daily find in serving Thee,
Love is perfect liberty.

4 By the Spirit of Thy grace
Thy distinguished witnesses,
Out of all the worldly throng,
Every nation, tribe, and tongue,
Called, and separated for Thine,
Now we in Thine image shine.

5 Thou hast by Thy hallowing blood
Consecrated us to God,
And we in the Holiest Place,
Offer up our prayer and praise,
Ceaseless "Abba, Father" cry,
Kings and priests of the Most High.

6 Mightier joys ordained to know,
When Thou com’st to reign below,
We shall at Thy side sit down,
Partners of Thy great white throne,
Kings a thousand years with Thee,
Kings thro’ all eternity.
