Revelation 19:6-9 (Listen)

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb

Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out,

“Hallelujah!
For the Lord our God
the Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and exult
and give him the glory,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
and his Bride has made herself ready;
it was granted her to clothe herself
with fine linen, bright and pure”—

for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.

And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.” (ESV)

Hymn : TLH 613 st. 1,3,4: Jerusalem, the Golden Hymnary.org link

1. Jerusalem the golden, 
With milk and honey blest, 
Beneath thy contemplation 
Sink heart and voice opprest. 
I know not, oh, I know not, 
What joys await us there, 
What radiancy of glory, 
What bliss beyond compare. 

3. There is the throne of David; 
And there, from care released, 
The shout of them that triumph, 
The song of them that feast; 
And they who with their Leader 
Have conquered in the fight 
Forever and forever 
Are clad in robes of white. 

4. O sweet and blessed country, 
The home of God’s elect! 
O sweet and blessed country 
That eager hearts expect! 
Jesus, in mercy bring us 
To that dear land of rest, 
Who art, with God the Father 
And Spirit, ever blest.
