The Epistle: A Reading from the Book of the Apocalypse: And I beheld, and 10, in the midst of the Throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as It had been Slain, Having Seven Horns and Seven Eyes, Which are the Seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the Earth. And He came and tcok the book out of the Right Hand of Him That sat. upon the Throne. .. I . And when He had taken the book, the four beasts and four -and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having everyone of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of the Saints. ', And they sung a ne'f song, saying, "THOU ART Worthy to take the book, and to open the seals ~hereof;,/For Thou wast Slain, and hast redeemed us to God by I'hy Blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; "And hast made us U?to Our God kings and Priests; and we shall reign on the Earth." v And I beheld, and Ii heard the voice of many angels round about the Throne, and the beasts, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand,and thousands of thousands; . Saying with a loud voice, "Worthy IS the Lamb That was Slain to receive power, and. riches, and honour and glory, and blessing." (Apoc, 5: 6 - 12)~. Thanks be to 'God.
