Hymn/Song Information

The countless multitude on high That




The countless multitude on high,
That tune their songs to Jesus’ Name,
All merit of their own deny,
And Jesus’ worth alone proclaim.


Firm on the ground of sovereign grace,
They stand before Jehovah’s throne;
The only song in that blest place
Is, “Thou art worthy Thou alone!”


With spotless robes of purest white,
And branches of triumphal palm,
They shout, with transports of delight,
Heaven’s ceaseless, universal psalm:


“Salvation’s glory all be paid
To Him who sits upon the throne,
And to the Lamb
whose blood was shed;
Thou! Thou art worthy! Thou alone!


“For Thou wast slain,
and in Thy blood
These robes were washed
so spotless pure;
Thou mad’st us kings
and priests to God,
For ever let Thy praise endure”


Let us with joy adopt the strain
We soon shall sing for ever there:
“Worthy’s the Lamb for sinners slain,
Worthy alone the crown to wear!”


While thus the ransomed myriads shout,
“Amen!” the holy angels cry—
Amen! Amen! resounds throughout
The boundless regions of the sky.


---Alternative verses---


The countless multitudes on high,
Who tune their songs to Jesus’ Name,
All merit of their own deny,
And Jesus’ worth alone proclaim.


Firm on the ground of sovereign grace
They stand before Jehovah’s throne;
The new song in that blessèd place
Is, “Thou art worthy, Thou alone!”
