Worthy Are You: A Prayer of Longing



I will offer my crown as one who has overcome

and place it on the ground

before your feet.

Then, with back arched

on the marvelous throne room floor

that soon collides with earth,

I shall heap blessings, in groups of 7, upon you.


“Worthy are you, Lamb of God, The Slain One,

to receive: power, riches, wisdom, strength,

honor, glory, and praise.”


This canticle, heavenly in origin and

Scriptural in tenor,

rises in unison from the

lips of the sanctified,

those yielded in full submission

to you, O benevolent God,

author of this narrative

of life between the trees.


“Worthy are you, Lamb of God, The Slain One,

to receive: power, riches, wisdom, strength,

honor, glory, and praise.”


I turn and in a many-splendored act,

I see: trees clapping, rivers singing, birds praising,

turtles worshiping, rocks calling out,

flowers bursting forth, planets twinkling

—the entire multitude of creation

expressing itself in gratitude.

I see glimpses now

but long to witness this in full

in the New Heavens and New Earth.


“Worthy are you, Lamb of God, The Slain One,

to receive: power, riches, wisdom, strength,

honor, glory, and praise.”
