Every Tribe, Language, People and Nation

Revelation 5 (Click here to read the whole passage.)


9 And they sang a new song, saying:


“You are worthy to take the scroll

and to open its seals,

because you were slain,

and with your blood you purchased for God

persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.

10 You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God,

and they will reign on the earth.”





One of my favourite parts of being a musician is the friendships I’ve made over the years with colleagues in the industry. This week I got to do a song swap with my fellow “musical sister” Amy Savin, and I chose her song “Unveiled (All Will See).” Check out the glorious picture painted by the lyrics in the chorus:


“All will see who You are

The unveiled God, so beautiful

All will know what You’re like

Love poured out through sacrifice

All the world will see, all the world know

You, the risen King, are so beautiful!”


It reminds me of the scene described in Revelation 5 in the throne room of God:


9 And they sang a new song, saying:


“You are worthy to take the scroll

and to open its seals,

because you were slain,

and with your blood you purchased for God

persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.

10 You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God,

and they will reign on the earth.”


11 Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. 12 In a loud voice they were saying:


“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,

to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength

and honor and glory and praise!”


13 Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying:


“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb

be praise and honor and glory and power,

for ever and ever!”

It’s a mosaic of cultures, tribes, languages, ethnicities creating a beautiful masterpiece of worship to God!


As we celebrate cultural diversity, we’re demonstrating a glimpse of heaven! He made us all different on purpose, for a purpose. What a creative God we serve!!


Reflection: How can I celebrate and embrace cultural diversity in my community?

LYRICS


Unveiled (All Will See)

By Amy Savin


Verse 1:

Father in heaven, the ancient one

The yearning of a thousand generations

Holy forever, mysterious God

Revealed to us in flesh, the living Word

Peace on earth


Chorus:

All will see who you are

The unveiled God, so beautiful

All will know what you’re like

Love poured out through sacrifice

All the world will see

All the world will know

You, the risen King

Are so beautiful


Verse 2:

Jesus, you teach us the Father’s heart

You are the mark; the essence of His nature

No love is greater; you gave your life

The creator died to save the created

We are free


Chorus


Bridge:

We’ll shout it from the mountains:

“Perfect love has conquered death and sin!"

Jesus - forever your compassion

Is our song; an anthem with no end


Chorus

You, the risen King
