Lyrics

Come out of Babylon, she’s fallen, come out of Babylon

Look upon the sacred page; Jesus cries out to His own
“Leave the church that joined the state, leave the harlot Babylon
“Leave her narcissistic ways, leave her desperate power plays
“Leave her, for the sake of your soul”

Voices all at once:
Come out of Babylon, she’s fallen
The kings cry, “Babylon, your majesty is long gone
The time of judgment now is coming due “
Woe, woe, Babylon! How quickly all your riches gone.
How quickly reckoning has come to you!

Gold, silver, precious stones, linen, purple, scarlet, silk
Wood, ivory, marble, cinnamon, wine, oil, flour, fruit and milk
Fine perfume and sweet incense, richest spice and frankincense
Animals and human slaves, all of them in early graves

Voices all at once:
Come out of Babylon, she’s fallen, she’s fallen
The merchants cry “Babylon! Your opulence is long gone
The time of tribulation coming due”
“Oh, woe, woe, Babylon! How quickly all your riches gone
How quickly reckoning has come to you!”

In one hour wealth laid waste; captains, shipmen, sailors cry
Dust upon their heads, in haste, watching dreams of riches die
All comes down within one hour, temptress loses all her power
Burned to ashes, naught remains but the memory of her pains
Come out of Babylon, she’s fallen, she’s fallen

She’s sunken like a millstone lead; no wedding lights, no marketplace
Musicians, artists, sculptors, dead; her sorceries brought her disgrace
But the end of her largesse brings to heaven happiness
Your blood avenged, God heard your voice
Apostles, prophets, saints, rejoice!

Voices all at once:
She’s fallen, she’s fallen
Angels cry “Babylon, your majesty is long gone
The time of judgment now is coming due “
Woe, woe, Babylon!
Rejoice over Babylon, how quickly all your riches gone
How quickly reckoning has come to you
Kings cry, “Babylon,” merchants cry, “Babylon”
Angels cry, “Babylon,” we all cry, “Babylon”
