From Genesis to Malachi We read and we fantasize About what it was like To live in those Bible times Matthew, Mark, Luke and John The Book of Acts and further on Tell us what it was like To live in those Bible times We’re living in Bible days We’re living in Bible days Just reach for your Bible And read what it says You’ll see we’re living in Bible days The prophets all point to days ahead And we take heed to what they’ve said That time has come to which they spoke Now you and I must wear this yoke We’re living in Bible days We’re living in Bible days Just reach for your Bible And read what it says You’ll see we’re living in Bible days Don’t be deceived were the words He said About days in the future so far ahead The signs are all here, pointing to now Not know the when where and how The prophets all point to days ahead And we take heed to what they’ve said That time has come to which they spoke Now you and I must wear this yoke We’re living in Bible days We’re living in Bible days Just reach for your Bible And read what it says You’ll see, you'll see We’re living in Bible days We’re living in Bible days Just reach for your Bible And read what it says You’ll see we’re living in Bible days You don’t have to wait You don’t have to wonder You don’t need a sign Of holy thunder To know we’re living in Bible times From Genesis to Malachi We read and we fantasize About what it was like To live in those Bible times Matthew, Mark, Luke and John The Book of Acts to Revelation Tell us what it is like To live in these Bible times Livin' in Bible times ...

A heads up … a warning Though you’ve ignored it before These birth pangs foreshadow Jesus waits at the door Earthquakes and famine Pestilence and war What’s coming is dire Great danger’s in store You’ve spent a lifetime sitting on the fence Saying things will work out is your confidence Being basically good is your rock of defense But what’s unfolding now’s no coincidence Do not take the mark, do not take the mark No matter what, no matter what Do not take the mark, do not take the mark Your only chance is don’t take the mark If you remain when millions at once disappear The gospel will be preached amidst chaos and fear Read scripture for yourself, the message is clear Know for a fact, the tribulation is near Do not take the mark, do not take the mark No matter what, no matter what Do not take the mark, do not take the mark Your only chance is don’t take the mark C’mon you say, why keep flogging this stuff You’ve heard it before, enough is enough But when a watchman speaks, it’s not off the cuff Shake your head, roll your eyes, but this is no bluff Do not take the mark, do not take the mark No matter what, no matter what Do not take the mark, do not take the mark Your only chance is don’t take the mark Your only chance is don’t take the mark Your only chance is don’t take the mark A beast will arise out of the sea Establishing rule by guile diplomacy Performing wonders and signs that deceive conclusively Demanding worship as God in vile blasphemy You think it’s all been a joke for centuries A myth revealed by degrees You’ve never been driven to your knees But when reality hits, your heart will seize When reality hits, your heart will seize Do not take the mark, do not take the mark No matter what Do not take the mark, do not take the mark No matter what Do not take the mark, do not take the mark ...

My flesh is weak But Your Spirit’s strong I do those things I know I shouldn’t do And I do not do those things Which draw me close to You My flesh is weak (the flesh is weak) But Your Spirit’s strong (Your Spirit’s strong) Freedom is one thing I know I’ve got But it doesn’t give license to sin Why do I find that more often than not The ways of the world seem to win My flesh is weak (the flesh is weak) But Your Spirit is strong (the Spirit's strong) My flesh is weak (the flesh is weak) But Your Spirit is strong (the Spirit's strong) I’m still running that race My eyes are fixed on the prize Sometimes I can’t keep the pace And I fall for the world’s lies I’m still running that race My eyes are fixed on the prize Sometimes I can’t keep the pace And I fall for the world’s lies My flesh is weak (the flesh is weak) But Your Spirit is strong (the Spirit's strong) My flesh is weak (the flesh is weak) But Your Spirit is strong (the Spirit is strong) Your grace is sufficient It’s in You where I belong Your grace is sufficient It’s in You where I belong Where I belong ...

Memories 04:22
Memories are tormenting me Bad memories are torturing me Carved in stone The deed is done The past cannot be changed Nor rearranged Old memories been haunting me Irish Catholic Guilt is plaguing me Irish Catholic Guilt been shaming me If a good day you had No worry lad This soon too shall pass Irish Catholic Guilt is blaming me The nemesis been gaslighting me My nemesis is gaslighting me Dark muse: j’accuse! Projecting his own stain And eternal shame Infernal flame Nemesis been gaslighting me Enemy assaulting me My enemy attacking me Fiery dart aimed to the heart Do you got your armour on? My enemy's assailing me Deliverer prevailing in me My Deliverer prevail through me The blood of the Lamb The word of our faith Love our lives not unto death Our last breath Deliverer prevailing in me Lamb of God Risen One Great High Priest Messiah King of all kings And Lord of all lords Your eyes are aflame From Your mouth proceeds a sword Memories been troubling me Bad memories are taunting me Next time the devil reminds you of your past Just remind him of his future Memories tormenting me Enemy assailing me Deliverer prevail In and through me Hallelujah Glory Hallelujah Glory …

For God so loved the world That He gave His only Son Whoever believes in Him will not perish But have everlasting life Everlasting life to come Growing old like a garment I know what that means Our mortal body ages slowly day by day For years we don’t notice But eventually it shows Then we can’t go on and simply pass away With everlasting life, we have no experience here The Word of God is the place where we are told Forevermore is in the future, there’s nothing of the past And when it arrives, we never will grow old For God so loved the world That He gave His only Son Whoever believes in Him will not perish But have everlasting life Everlasting life to come At the foundation of faith in Jesus is eternal life With atonement, resurrection, and being born again I don’t understand now, but I know that it’s true And one day I will fully comprehend So we receive everlasting life in heaven Because Jesus Christ died for all our sin So when we trust in Him and believe We are pardoned and have eternal life with Him Everlasting life, I can’t ever earn it I can’t buy it, and it is from no merit of my own We are saved by grace, and that through faith In the Holy Lamb of God alone We receive everlasting life in heaven Jesus Christ died for all our sin When we trust in Him and believe We are pardoned and have eternal life with Him God so loved the world He gave His only Son Whosoever believes in Him will not perish But have everlasting life Everlasting life Everlasting life Everlasting life to come Life to come Life to come ...

Tribulation 04:26
I know you’ll think it’s crazy What I have to say Will you face the tribulation Or be caught away The Day of the Lord will arrive Like a flood in full rush The Beast will rise All will comply or be crushed Earthquakes, famine, pestilence, and war Things that this world has not bargained for Like a woman in labour The signs are showing More intense and more frequent The birth pains are growing Enlightenment philosophy Humanism, evolution Secularism, post-modernism Materialism, revolution They’ve all run their course The outcome of sin No moral compass Just dust in the wind Dust in the wind Where you end up results From the choice you make You should think about that So much is at stake God’s Word holds the truth Or are you disinclined Will you believe in the Saviour Or run out of time Will you believe in the Saviour Or run out of time The tribulation is coming From days of old The tribulation is coming It’s been foretold Time’s greatest upheaval Horror and plight Then Jesus will come Like a thief in the night Jesus will come Like a thief in the night ...

I hit the streets when I was just sixteen They were cold, dirty, so hard and mean At eighteen I hit the road for the coast It’s where I desired to be the most Life was no different on those city streets I still had no comforts, no bed, or sheets Back and forth I travelled looking for a home The real truth is, I just preferred to roam Selling drugs for a living is no way to live I received more beatings than I could give I drank myself stupid trying to hide my pain Swearing to myself I’d never do it again I believed it was just me I was hurting the most And nobody would care when I was dead as a ghost Though I hurt many people doing the things I had done None were hurt more than the Father, Spirit and Son In nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti Then I saw a Great White Throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Back then I learned a lesson or two Lessons about what and what not to do Today I look back at all that I’ve learnt Aware I wouldn’t be who I am if it twernt I wouldn’t be who I am if it twernt I wouldn’t be who I am if it twernt for those days If it twernt for those days ...

These are the days These are the days These are the days of great falling away Like Judas of old who chose to betray The scripture foretold it would be this way Will you be left behind These are the days These are the days Like flies gather, false teachers appear Preaching lies itching ears desire to hear What is called faith is affected veneer Will you be left behind As in Noah’s day, they show no concern They scoff and mock, where’s this promised return? That time they drowned, this time they’ll burn Will you be left behind The Lord knocks at the door, they pay no heed We’re rich they claim, there’s nothing we need Blind, naked, and poor, they’re lukewarm indeed Will you be left behind These are the days These are the days Come on, they say, it’s all a myth To hear this talk, it’s just as if We’re on the verge of some cosmic shift Will you be left behind The handwriting appears upon the wall The watchman discloses an ominous call Few pay attention to the warning at all Will you be left behind A shout, a trumpet, what’s going on In but an instant, the faithful have gone Darkness prevails where the light once shone Will you be left behind The Lord knocks at the door, they pay no heed We’re rich they claim, there’s nothing we need Blind, naked, and poor, they’re lukewarm indeed The Lord knocks at the door, they pay no heed We’re rich they claim, there’s nothing we need Blind, naked, and poor, they’re lukewarm indeed Indeed, they're lukewarm indeed Will you be left behind As in Noah’s day, they show no concern They scoff and mock, where’s this promised return? That time they drowned, this time they’ll burn They’ll burn, they’ll burn Will you be left behind? Indeed, these are the days These are the days These are the days ...

The smell of great sorrow hangs in the air Unease about the future stalks us everywhere Labour pains are more intense, there’s sign after sign Of the Kingdom that is coming in the fullness of God’s time History has no focus, it’s a wilderness for sure Apart from Christ Jesus, it is sick beyond a cure People scoff at His return, say that it’s a fallacy But there’s no force under heaven that can cheat the prophecy Old Daniel saw the vision, the beast rose up from the sea The Ancient of Days came and destroyed the enemy The Son of Man received all glory at this holy rendezvous Instead of chaos there’s the hope of anticipation blues As in the days of Noah, life just carries on People want the darkness, they’re in bed with Babylon They like to keep a stash for their peace of mind There’s an elephant in the room They’ll have to leave it all behind A mighty judgment’s coming No one listens, no one hears Warnings of apocalypse fall upon deaf ears Naysayers dismiss it as a fool’s conspiracy The writing’s on the wall but they don’t want to see Old Daniel saw the vision, the beast rose up from the sea The Ancient of Days came and destroyed the enemy The Son of Man received all glory at this holy rendezvous Instead of chaos there’s the hope of anticipation blues The churches say they’re rich But they’re naked, blind, and poor The Saviour’s on the outside knocking at the door Because they are lukewarm, the Lord will spit them out The Revelator wrote it down, beyond a shadow of a doubt The great falling away has begun Love for Jesus has grown cold We knew these days were coming, all of it was foretold False teachers broke in, they ingeniously deceived But the faithful will be saved By the Lamb in whom they have believed Who knows the evil of indifference Who has an ear to hear and then repents When time comes to an end, they will be aware Opportunity is gone, no second chance will be there No one can claim that they never heard The gospel was proclaimed throughout all the world And then the King appears to inconceivable shock Every word is true, dread is all they’ve got Old Daniel saw the vision, the beast rose up from the sea The Ancient of Days came and destroyed the enemy The Son of Man received all glory at this holy rendezvous Instead of chaos there’s the blessed hope Old Daniel saw the vision, the beast rose up from the sea The Ancient of Days came and destroyed the enemy The Son of Man received all glory at this holy rendezvous Instead of chaos there’s the hope of anticipation blues Anticipation blues Anticipation blues Anticipation blues.

Behold the Lamb Behold the Lamb Consider Jesus Consider Jesus Consider Jesus bumper stickers Used to see them all the time Probably illegal now They’re too far across the line Thoughts of Him have long faded from the cultural purview He’s to blame for most everything inappropriate to do Consider Jesus Consider Jesus Rejected for two thousand years The most despised of history Out of love He gave His life Contempt for Him’s a mystery Yet the smoke and mirrors narrative still stones Jesus’ name The subjective bias drones on and on The song remains the same It takes courage to follow Jesus It’s not something you can fake They persecute His faithful It’s the risk one has to take Is this life more important than eternity Each of us must decide what our choice will be Consider Jesus Truth stumbles in the streets and honesty’s outlawed Condemning those denouncing evil because they believe in God As in the days of Noah, iniquity is in plain sight Mankind loves the darkness far more than the light Mankind loves the darkness far more than the light It takes courage to follow Jesus It’s not something you can fake They persecute His faithful It’s the risk one has to take Is this life more important than eternity Each of us must decide what our choice will be Without the shedding of His blood No sin could be forgiven Other than through Jesus No one could enter heaven His Holy Spirit seals our inherited destiny Reveals His Word and sanctifies us in His reality His resurrection from the dead means believers rise up too Believe in Him for salvation is all He asks us to do His grace and mercy given, the greatest truth ever told Yes, consider Jesus, the Lamb of God behold Yes, consider Jesus, the Lamb of God behold Yes, consider Jesus, the Lamb of God Behold the Lamb Worthy is the Lamb that was slain Blessing and honour and glory and power ...

I heard You knockin’ On the door of my heart I love You Jesus I’m not ready to start Ooh, ooh, His kingdom come I hit the gutter And I lost my soul I watched the devil Buy a man with gold Gone, gone, the kingdom come The kingdom come I love the Lord And pray His kingdom come Don’t you know His victory’s already been won But every sinner’s Like another one Like another one I praise the Lord Because I love Him so I know that most of you Don’t even want to know Jesus, Jesus and His kingdom come Jesus, Jesus and His kingdom come His kingdom come Jesus and His kingdom come ...

Most today view God’s Word as a myth They don’t see it as truth, so dismiss it forthwith Something from the age of the dinosaur No longer valid, simply ignored Hardly any take it literally It’s to be read, they argue, allegorically And God is not considered the source through His Spirit Consequently it’s brushed off, few willing to hear it Standing on the rock Standing on the rock Standing on the rock Of the Word of God The Word of God Prophecy is doubted despite its past accuracy Fulfilled to the letter miraculously Deemed irrelevant at this point in time Put out to pasture, long in decline This rejection of scripture began in the past Where higher learning was esteemed and presumed unsurpassed Those who discard it are heralded as wise Particularly from the perspective of their own eyes Standing on the rock Standing on the rock Standing on the rock Of the Word of God Denying God’s Word results in the great apostasy That abandons the cross of Calvary Itching ears want to hear the lies and malaise Foretold that would come in the last days Salvation, sanctification, and encouragement in its pages We behold the Lamb of God, the hope of the ages Here we find life’s meaning Where we came from, and where we’re going We witness God’s steadfast love ever overflowing Standing on the rock Standing on the rock Standing on the rock Of the Word of God The Word of God Denying God’s Word results in the great apostasy That abandons the cross of Calvary Itching ears want to hear the lies and malaise Foretold that would come in the last days Standing on the rock Standing on the rock Standing on the rock Of the Word of God Standing on the rock Standing on the rock Standing on the rock Of the Word of God Standing on the rock Of the Word of God Standing on the rock Of the Word of God The Word of God.
