75  A Song of the Spirit


All   Surely I am coming soon.

Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!

1    ‘Behold, I am coming soon’, says the Lord,

‘and bringing my reward with me,  

to give to everyone according to their deeds.

2    ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last,  

the beginning and the end.’

3    Blessed are those who do God’s commandments,

that they may have the right to the tree of life,  

and may enter into the city through the gates.

4    ‘I, Jesus, have sent my angel to you,  

with this testimony for all the churches.

5    ‘I am the root and the offspring of David,  

I am the bright morning star.’

6    ‘Come!’ say the Spirit and the Bride;  

‘Come!’ let each hearer reply.

7    Come forward, you who are thirsty,  

let those who desire take the water of life as a gift.

Revelation 22.12-14,16,17

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   Surely I am coming soon.

Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!
