lyrics

It’s plain to see
That the world is doomed
And the nuclear destructive power
Is just the tip of the iceberg
The proof is clear
All the signs are here
The day is evil
And the end is near.

Ever since the Fall
The writing on the wall
Ever since the beginning
When we turned our back on our Creator
We killed His Son
We reject His love
Is it any wonder that Judgment Day is coming?

You know we raped mother earth
(And for what it’s worth)
We love to blame the Lord
For what’s clearly our fault
We are responsible, one and all
One and all

Is civilization soon to be a wasteland?
Has society’s moral fibre been reduced to a frayed strand?
Would the human race sooner trade God’s grace
For the tightening chains of silent strangulation?

Strangulation—the wage of sin
The war of ages that rages within
A losing battle to fight yourself
This is life or death, heaven or hell
The choice to live or die
So choose life, choose life
Choose life … Jesus Christ

You know He stood in our stead
Tasted death for every man
So how do we respond
To the truth of this reality
If we are responsible for our destiny?
Eternal destiny
O, heavy baby

To speak the truth
Not man’s opinion
As the facts withstand the test of time
To the hour of fulfillment
When the Lamb that was slain comes to earth again
He's coming back again!

As True and Faithful
Not the homeless stranger
The homeless stranger
Our Creator
The Babe in the manger
Nowhere to lay His head
No, nowhere to lay His head
The sweet Lord Jesus
I love You, Lord Jesus
I want to be with You
So come back for me soon
Please ...!
