Is He Worthy?

I first heard this song, written by Andrew Peterson, earlier in the year, and it has quickly become one of my favorites. I can listen to it on an endless loop (and have). Written in a question-and-response format, the text powerfully reminds us of how worthy Jesus Christ is to make all things new…


Do you feel the world is broken?
We do.
Do you feel the shadows deepen?
We do.
But do you know that all the dark won’t stop the light from getting through?
We do.
Do you wish that you could see it all made new?
We do.

Is all creation groaning?
It is.
Is a new creation coming?
It is.
Is the glory of the Lord to be the light within our midst?
It is.
Is it good that we remind ourselves of this?
It is.

Is anyone worthy?
Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah, who conquered the grave,
He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave.
Is He worthy?
Is He worthy of all blessing and honor and glory?
Is He worthy of this?
He is.

Does the Father truly love us?
He does.
Does the Spirit move among us?
He does.
And does Jesus our Messiah hold forever those He loves?
He does.
Does our God intend to dwell again with us?
He does.

Is anyone worthy?
Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah, who conquered the grave,
He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave.
From every people and tribe, every nation and tongue,
He has made us a kingdom of priests to God, to reign with the Son.
Is He worthy?
Is He worthy of all blessing and honor and glory?
Is He worthy?
Is He worthy?
Is He worthy of this?
He is!
Is He worthy?
Is He worthy?
He is!
He is!


NOTE: If you’ve watched Andrew’s video, and are concerned by the lack of diversity among the musicians for a song that speaks of God’s kingdom, which will consist of every people and tribe, every nation and tongue” (Revelation 7:9-10) I would encourage you to read his blog post, Waking Up To Is He Worthy?”: An Apology


I also really love Chris Tomlins recording of this song:
