“Worthy are you to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation,

and they shall reign on the earth.”

to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might
and honor and glory and blessing!”

be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”
