The readings and propers today speak mainly of the Shepherd and his sheep, but the second reading from Apocalypse 7 talks instead of the Lamb:

they were standing in front of the throne
and in front of the Lamb,
dressed in white robes
and holding palms in their hands.

O Quam Gloriosum sets a similar text (an antiphon from Vespers for the feast of All Saints), which paraphrases the same scriptural source:

O how glorious is the kingdom
in which all the saints rejoice with Christ.
Robed in white,
they follow the Lamb
wherever he will go.
