The Complete Handel's Messiah: Chorus: Worthy Is the Lamb

Part III
A Hymn of Thanksgiving for the final overthrow of Death


53. Chorus

Worthy is the Lamb that was slain,
and hath redeemed us to God by His blood,
to receive power,
and riches,
and wisdom,
and strength,
and honour,
and glory,
and blessing.

Blessing and honour,
glory and power,
be unto Him
that sitteth upon the throne,
and unto the Lamb,
for ever and ever.

We have reached the finale of Handel's Messiah. Thank you for listening and following along. May our Lord Jesus Christ bless you and keep you in His peace this Easter season.


  1. Thanks for dropping by, Crystal. Have a blessed weekend!

  2. If we spent more time glorifying God, we would have less time to trash the beautiful creation He has given us. We would spend more time being stewards and less time acting like owners. Thank you for this reminder of who is in charge.
