Chords: The Little Horn Takes the Stage

Text: Daniel 7  --  Track 22

 

Em

Prophets portray the nations as creatures

C

So say the eschatology teachers

Am                        B

Drama played out, narrated by preachers, now

-------

Em

Many years after Nebuchadnezzar

C

Prophecy came 1st year of Belshazzar

Am                          B

Wind on the sea, then four predators- Wow!

-------

Em

Lion with eagle wings, it towered

C

Lopsided bear, all others devoured

Am                        B

Four-headed leopard, it overpowered the bear

-------

Em

Then came the fourth, defying description

C

Crushing and cruel, cold-blooded mission

Am                        B

From the ten horns, a little horn makes us stare

And the little horn takes the stage

-------

E

Small things

        Am

Can become big things

        D

Plucking out three kings

         G

Eyes of a man

C

And boasting

    G

Posturing, bragging

     D

Rising up angry

    B

That moment when

The little horn takes the stage

-------

Em

Just at the moment evil comes raging

C

Calling an end to the wars and the waging

Am                               B

Who comes along and moves all the staging --God

-------

Em

Ancient of Days, white hair and white robe

C

River of fire, flows from His white throne

Am                    B

Myriad angels, all of the globe is—awed

When the little horn takes the stage

-------

E

Big things

        Am

Can become small things

    D

If they usurp the King of Kings

          G

And persecute saints

C

And tamper  

    G

With God’s commandments  

        D

Claiming to be Him

            B

When he certainly ain’t

When the little horn takes the stage

-------

Em

Into the fire, you, cruel persecutor  

System of shame, you child abuser

Intending to change God’s holy seventh

Trampling the Cross, blaspheming heaven

You’re a bane to life on earth

A blight, a plague, an ever-corrupting curse

Deceiving the world, but prophecy speaks

And we will know who you are

When the little horn takes the stage
