Blessing and honor and glory

Blessing and honor and glory and power,
wisdom and riches and strength evermore,
offer to Christ who our battle has won,
whose are the kingdom, the crown, and the throne!
Sound all the heaven! Resound with his name!
Ring all the earth with his glory and fame!
Ocean and mountain, stream, forest, and flower
echo his praises and tell of his power.
Ever ascending the song and the joy,
ever descending the love from on high;
blessing and honor and glory and praise -
this is the theme of the hymns that we raise.
Give we the glory and praise to the Lamb!
Take we the robe and the harp and the palm.
Sing we the song of the Lamb who was slain,
dying in weakness but rising to reign!
