Text: Revelation 14:14-20  --  Disc 1 Track 24  --  60bpm  --  Capo2

 

E        B    A         E        B A     E      B  A    E         

A white cloud-throne, the Son of Man, a golden crown, a sickle sharp

    A                      E        B  A E   B A

John saw all this, then heard “Put in your sickle! Reap!”

    E    B   A  E           B A E        B A E

“The earth is ripe, the time has come” the angel cried with all his heart

    A                E               B A E B  A

And Jesus reaped the earth, a harvest He would keep

    B        A              B                 A

The end will come, probation close; you’ll have to live or die with what you chose

    B                A                 E  B A  E

But the mystery of the moment of the harvest time only God knows

E    B    A         E        B A     E      B  A    E

Another one, an angel came, through temple gate with altar fire

        A                E    B  A E  B A

And said to one, “The clusters of the earth are ripe!”

E    B    A             E        B A          E      B  A                    E

“Put in your sickle!” and he did; and threw the grapes that he’d acquired

   A                    E

Into God’s great winepress, and with a single swipe

-------

    B        A              B                 A

The end will come, probation close; you’ll have to live or die with what you chose

    B                A                 E  B A  E

But the mystery of the moment of the harvest time only God knows

    E    B    A             E        B A     E      B  A    E

Now here’s the shock: there were so many grapes that blood flowed everywhere

    A                    E      B A E  B A

Two thousand miles and deep as horses’ bridles high

    E    B    A     E    B    A E      B  A    E

One almost wonders why the Savior lived and died, our sin to bear

    A                        E   B A  E B A

His blood has flowed already, but they spurned it. Why?

-------

    B        A              B                 A

The end will come, probation close; you’ll have to live or die with what you chose

    B                A                 E  B A  E

But the mystery of the moment of the harvest time only God knows
