You are worthy, Lord--
to receive power
and wealth
and wisdom
and strength
and honor
and glory
and praise.

Blessing and honor and glory and power are yours, Lord, the Lamb of God who sits upon the throne.

The conjunctions in those lists, Lord--"and...and...and"--emphasize to me that you are worthy of all, equally and completely. One is not your due more than another; there is no heirarchy or ranking of your worthiness, but you are worthy of it all, and I give it to you now, and desire to give it to you more fully and faithfully, in Jesus' name, amen.
