Jesus sits on a cloud ready to reap,
Not just one soul, but the whole world,
His sickle separates tares from wheat,
The time is right for justice to unfurl.
An angel proclaims the gospel
in each language, nation and tribe,
even to the bitter and hostile,
to every person alive.
A second angel flies says in midair
“Fallen is Babylon the Great,”
nations drink of her affairs,
destruction is her final fate.
A third angel follows the path,
warning not to worship the beast,
lest they drink of God’s wrath,
ev’ryone from greatest to least.
Blessed are those who die in the Lord
and rest in peace from their labor.
LISTEN! Hear the sound from heaven,
It’s like rushing water or rolling thunder,
LISTEN! A company of harps,
A new song is sung — a secret one,
144,000 know the song,
You can hear it if you LISTEN.
LOOK! They stand on Mount Zion
before the throne of the Lamb,
LOOK! They’re the redeemed of the earth,
They’re the first-fruits of mankind,
144,000 follow the Lamb,
You can see it if you LOOK.
UNDERSTAND! They are blameless
with no lie in their mouths,
UNDERSTAND! They are virgins,
never defiled by a woman,
144,000 with God’s name,
You can grasp His holiness if you UNDERSTAND.
