Text: Revelation 1:9-20  --  Disc 1 Track 4  --  64 bpm  --  Capo on 4

 

    C            F

It was Sabbath on Patmos, that island-jail

    C            F

I was there for the Word and the witness

    C                  G

I was filled with the good ghost on sandy shale

    F            G

I was thinking back over the distance

      C               F

When I heard from behind me a trumpet sound

       C                      F

Saying, “Write in a book what you’re seeing

          C               G

“Then tell all the churches from Ephesus down

           F            G

“What the Spirit of truth is revealing”

     C                       F

When I turned, Son of Man stood, in long white robe

       C            F

Golden belt, white hair, eyes a-flaming

            C               G

With those burning brass feet, so solemnly strode

               F                G

Through the candlesticks soon He’d be naming

 

        C                      F

See, the candles were churches, the stars in hand

         C            F

Were the messengers sent to correct them

        C                G

And the sword from his mouth was His Word-command

         F            G

Which would slay, but then finally protect them

         C    E                  Am  Fm

Vision of Jesus; fill our eyes with lovelight

                  C Bb           C

Children don’t worry, as the sky turns to dark night

-------

         C                    F

I fell dead as his feet, trembling, fearful one

    C                F

But He laid His right hand on my shoulder

    C                 G

“Fear not” He said kindly, “death is undone”

      F            G

“I have proven my love to be bolder”

    C                  F

“I am holding death’s keys, I have conquered at last

        C            F

“But the controversy must be unfurled

    C               G

“The visions you’ll see will reveal the past

       F                    G

And the future events of this lost world

-------

    C    E                  Am  Fm

Vision of Jesus; fill our eyes with lovelight

                  C Bb           C

Children don’t worry, as the sky turns to dark night
