Getting in the Mood to Praise

This coming Sunday's second lesson, on which I'll be preaching presents a scene of worship to the Lamb of God, the crucified and risen Jesus. It presents a vision of John the Evangelist in the heavenly throne room, where God (the Father) and the Lamb (Jesus) share a throne. The passage invites us to join in praising the Lamb, too. Here are some hymns of praise to get you in the mood for Sunday.

But first, the passage: Revelation 5:11-14:
Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels surrounding the throne and the living creatures and the elders; they numbered myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, singing with full voice, “Worthy is the Lamb that was slaughtered to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!” Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, singing, “To the one seated on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!” And the four living creatures said, “Amen!” And the elders fell down and worshiped.
