There in heaven John sobbed great tears and cried.
Then, “Weep not” one of the elders replied:
“The secrets of the scroll can be unveiled”
“for the Lion of Judah has prevailed.”
Before them stood a Lamb so clear and plain
pierced and looking as though it had been slain.
Then the Lamb took the scroll as angels sang
and throughout heaven this great chorus rang.
“Worthy is the Lamb” all the heavens cried,
and “Worthy is the Lamb” the earth replied,
“For He was slain for us and shed His blood
and purchased the people on earth for God..”
The Lion became a Lamb to pay the price
and saved the world by His great sacrifice,
as He hung there upon that wooden cross,
and gave up His life to redeem the lost.
So weep no more and shed no more tears
but join the song throughout eternal years.
For The Lion of Judah has prevailed,
where Satan and all his minions had failed.
