Refrain:

All   Salvation belongs to our God,

who will guide us to springs of living water.

1    Behold, a great multitude  

which no one could number,

2    From every nation,

from all tribes and peoples and tongues,  

standing before the throne and the Lamb.

3    They were clothed in white robes

and had palms in their hands,  

and they cried with a loud voice, saying,

4    ‘Salvation belongs to our God

who sits on the throne,  

and to the Lamb.’

5    These are they

who have come out of the great tribulation,  

they have washed their robes

and made them white in the blood of the Lamb;

6    Therefore they stand before the throne of God,  

whom they serve day and night within the temple.

7    And the One who sits upon the throne  

will shelter them with his presence.

8    They shall never again feel hunger or thirst,  

the sun shall not strike them,

nor any scorching heat.

9    For the Lamb at the heart of the throne  

will be their Shepherd,

10  He will guide them to springs of living water,  

and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.

Revelation 7.9,10,14b-17

All   To the One who sits on the throne and to the Lamb  

be blessing and honour and glory and might,

for ever and ever. Amen.

All   Salvation belongs to our God,

who will guide us to springs of living water.
