this canticle is made up of the songs sung to God and to the Lamb by the court of heaven in the revelation of John, and is sung by the episcopal church on tuesday and friday mornings. it can be found in the bible in the fourth and fifth chapter of revelation.

splendor and honor and kingly power
    are yours by right, o Lord our God,
for you created everything that is,
    and by your will they were created and have their being;

and yours by right, o Lamb that was slain,
    for with your blood you have redeemed for God,
from every family, language, people, and nation,
    a kingdom of priests to serve our God.

and so, to him who sits upon the throne,
    and to Christ the Lamb,
be worship and praise, dominion and splendor,
    for ever and for evermore.
