Praise from the Great Multitude

9After this I behelde, and lo, a gret multitude (which no man coulde nombre) of all nacions and people, and tonges, stode before the seate, and before the lambe, clothed wt longe whyte garmetes, and palmes in their hondes, 10and cryed with a loude voyce, sayenge: saluacion be asscribed to him yt sytteth vpon the seate of oure God, and vnto the lambe. 11And all the angels stode in the compase of the seate, and of the elders and of the foure beastes, and fell before ye seat on their faces, and worshipped God, 12sayenge, amen: Blessynge and glory, wissdome and thakes, and honour, and power and might, be vnto oure God for euermore Amen.

13And one of the elders answered, sayenge vnto me: what are these which are arayed in longe whyte garmetes, and whence cam they? 14And I sayde vnto him: LORDE thou wotest. And he sayde vnto me: these are they which cam out of gret tribulacion, and made their garmentes large, and made the whyte in the bloude of the lambe: 15therfore are they in the presence of the seate of God and serue him daye and night in his temple, and he that sytteth in the seate, wyll dwell amonge them. 16They shal honger nomore nether thyrst, nether shal the sonne lyght on them, nether eny heate: 17For the labe which is in the myddes of the seate, shal fede them, and shal leade them vnto fountaynes of lyuynge water, and God shal wype awaye all teares from their eyes.
