With Harps and with Vials

also called
The New Song

A. T. Pierson

8And when He had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints. 9And they sung a new song, saying, “Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for Thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by Thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10and hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”

Revelation 5:8-10 KJV

5…and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood, 6and hath made us kings and priests unto God and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Revelation 1:5-6 KJV

With harps and with vials,
There stand a great throng
In the presence of Jesus,
And sing this new song:

Unto Him Who hath loved us
And washed us from sin,
Unto Him be the glory forever,

All these once were sinners,
Defiled in His sight;
Now arrayed in pure garments
In praise they unite:

He maketh the rebel
A priest and a king;
He hath bought us and taught us
This new song to sing:

How helpless and hopeless
We sinners had been,
If He never had loved us
Till cleansed from our sin:

Aloud in His praises
Our voices shall ring,
So that others, believing,
This new song shall sing:
