#1         #2           #3         #4

Angel from heaven with a rainbow-shroud

#1         #2           #3         #4

Face and feet burning and clothed with a cloud

#1         #2           #3         #4

Little book in hand, he gave a lion’s roar

        #2                            #3

And the seven thunders pealed as he stood upon the shore

          #1        #2        #3           #4

John was just about to write but from heaven he heard “No!”

            #1        #2              #3            #4

“You must seal up the words of the seven thunders’ woe”

        #1        #2        #3        #4

And the angel on the shore raised his right hand up to say

        #2                            #3

“I swear by the Creator there will be no more delay, you must”

#1         #2    #3         #4

Take my word! Take my word

#1     #2           #3         #4

Take my word, take my word for it

#1         #2           #3         #4

Take my word! Take my word

        #2                            #3

If you want to know the prophecy then take my word

-------

#1         #2        #3               #4

“The mystery of God is finished, don’t you know?

         #1                    #2           #3         #4

When the seventh-angel trumpet is just about to blow”

    #1         #2                   #3     #4

That voice from heaven thundered down the glittering shore

        #2                            #3

When He told John to do something that pierced him to his core

    #1         #2           #3         #4

“Go, take the little book which is open in the hand

#1             #2           #3         #4

Of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land”

    #1            #2                            #3         #4

The angel held the book out with the warning, “Tell you what”

        #2                            #3

In your mouth it will be sweet, but it will sour in your gut, but”

-------

#1         #2    #3         #4

Take my word, take my word for it

#1         #2           #3         #4

Take my word! Take my word

        #2                            #3

If you want to know the prophecy then take my word

-------

#1         #2           #3         #4    

I think we all can see how the prophecy applies

#1         #2           #3         #4

Those bitter disappointments help us all to realize

#1         #2                   #3         #4

That God’s timing is as perfect as our understanding flawed

        #2                            #3

And our failed interpretations drive us to the Word of God

-------

#1         #2    #3         #4

Take my word! Take my word

#1     #2           #3         #4

        #2                            #3
