Vrednic e Mielul Sfânt

Vrednic e Mielul Sfânt să fie-ncoronat,
Cântați voi, ceruri și pământ pe Marele-mpărat
Din inimă-L slăvesc și cânt cu toate-n cor
Căci El e mântu---i---rea mea și Rege-al regilor.
E al iubirii Domn slăvit și-ncoronat,
El poartă-al răstignirii semn, dar e glorificat
Nu-i nimenea sub cer ca El de preamărit,
Coroana slavei este-a Lui căci El a biruit
E al vieții Domn slăvit și-ncoronat,
Cu moartea Sa de Fiu ceresc pe moarte a călcat
El ne-a deschis un drum spre lumea cea de sus,
El pentru noi a biruit, la viață ne-a adus
E Rege-al regilor în cer și pe pământ,
La fel cu Tatăl în măriri, la fel cu Duhul Sfânt
Veniți în fața Lui, în adorare stați,
Lăudați pe Cel încoronat și Lui vă închinați!

Versiunea Originală

Crown Him With Many Crowns

Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne.
Hark! How the heavenly anthem drowns all music but its own.
Awake, my soul, and sing of Him who died for thee,
And hail Him as thy matchless King through all eternity.

Crown Him the Lord of love, behold His hands and side,
Those wounds, yet visible above, in beauty glorified.
No angel in the sky can fully bear that sight,
But downward bends his burning eye at mysteries so bright.

Crown Him the Lord of life, who triumphed over the grave,
And rose victorious in the strife for those He came to save.
His glories now we sing, who died, and rose on high,
Who died eternal life to bring, and lives that death may die.

Crown Him the Lord of heaven: One with the Father known,
One with the Spirit Through Him given From yonder glorious throne.
All hail, Redeemer, hail! For Thou hast died for me;
Thy praise and glory shall not fail Throughout eternity.

Crown Him the Lord of lords, who over all doth reign,
Who once on earth, the incarnate Word, for ransomed sinners slain,
Now lives in realms of light, where saints with angels sing
Their songs before Him day and night, their God, Redeemer, King.

Crown Him the Lord of years, the Potentate of time,
Creator of the rolling spheres, ineffably sublime.
All hail, Redeemer, hail! For Thou has died for me;
Thy praise and glory shall not fail throughout eternity.

Story behind the song - Crown Him with Many Crowns

Composers Matthew Bridges and Godfrey Thring Write Crown Him with Many Crowns

Quickest way to build a beautiful church website.

In the 1800s there was great tension between the Catholic and Anglican churches (see: History of Hymns). Crown Him with Many Crowns is a wonderful example of how God takes the troubles of man and turns them around for good (Romans 8:28).

The song was originally penned in 1851 by Matthew Bridges (1800-1894), who once wrote a book condemning Roman Catholic theology, and then later converted to Catholicism. Bridges wrote six stanzas, based upon Revelations 19:12, “...and on His head were many crowns.”

Godfrey Thring (1823-1903) was a devout Anglican clergyman who was concerned that this popular hymn was allowing Catholic theology to be sung by protestant congregations. And so he wrote six new verses.

The 12 stanzas have been mixed and matched down through the years. Interestingly, of the following six verses most commonly appearing in hymnals today, three were written by Bridges (vs 1,2,and 4) and three by Thring (vs 3,5 and 6).

“And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:11)
