Sunday Praise and Worship: Agnus Dei (Worthy)


I was one of those odd people who took two languages in high school: French and Latin. I haven’t used either language much since then but I do remember that Agnus Dei means Lamb of God in Latin.

The song Agnus Dei (Worthy) by Third Day is a glorious song of praise and worship to Jesus Christ, the Lamb who was sacrificed on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. As you listen to this song, ponder these words of hope and JOY that attest to the worthiness of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ:

Now when He had taken the scroll,
the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders
fell down before the Lamb,
each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense,
which are the prayers of the saints.

And they sang a new song, saying:

“You are worthy to take the scroll,
And to open its seals;
For You were slain,
And have redeemed us to God by Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
And have made us kings and priests to our God;

And we shall reign on the earth.”

Then I looked,
and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne,
the living creatures, and the elders;
and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand,
and thousands of thousands,

saying with a loud voice:

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
To receive power and riches and wisdom,

And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”

—Rev 5:8-12
