Revelation Song -- Advent Style

During Advent 2012 we needed some more Advent worship music. We try to adhere to the church year and not sing Christmas songs before the day and season of Christmas. So in a moment of inspiration (or insanity) I played with the lyrics of great worship song, Revelation Song, and added some Advent-styled lyrics.  

Verse 1
Worthy is the
Lamb who was slain
Holy, holy is He.

Sing a new song,
to Him who sits on
Heaven's mercy seat.  

Verse 2
Worthy is the
Babe of Mary
Holy, holy is He.

Son of David,
Root of Jesse,
Born a child and king.  

Verse 3
Prepare the way of,
the one who is Lord,
Holy, holy is He.
Son of David,
Root of Jesse,
Christ the coming King.

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,
Who was and is and is to come.
With all creation I sing, praise to the King of Kings;
you are my everything and I will adore you.

Obviously verse 1 is part of the original song and it really is more attuned to Good Friday but we sang it with the rest of the new verses and it worked.

May all honor and glory be unto you O Lord my God and Redeemer. Amen
