Daniel 7
Revelation 13:1-10

lyrics

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.
