53 A SONG OF THE REDEEMED
Ecce, turba multa

Refrain: Salvation belongs to our God,*
who will guide us to springs of living water.
1 Behold, a great multitude*
which no one could number,
2 From every nation,
   from all tribes and peoples and tongues,*
standing before the throne and the Lamb.
3 They were clothed in white robes
   and had palms in their hands,*
and they cried with a loud voice, saying,
4 ‘Salvation belongs to our God*
who sits on the throne,
   and to the Lamb.’
5 These are they
   who have come out of the great tribulation,*
they have washed their robes
   and made them white in the blood of the Lamb;
6 Therefore they stand before the throne of God,*
whom they serve day and night within the temple.
7 And the One who sits upon the throne*
will shelter them with his presence.
8 They shall never again feel hunger or thirst,*
the sun shall not strike them,
   nor any scorching heat.
9 For the Lamb at the heart of the throne*
will be their Shepherd,
10 He will guide them to springs of living water,*
and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
To the One who sits on the throne and to the Lamb*
be blessing and honour and glory and might,
   for ever and ever. Amen.
Revelation 7. 9-10, 14b-17
Salvation belongs to our God*
who will guide us to springs of living water.
