End Song

The Darkness threatens to enter my home 
And proclaim the great things that man has done
These hands of men and their great rebellion
That have finally removed the need for God
Imagine there’s no future 
Beyond the hardness of man’s heart
The rich and haughty, smart and mighty
Declare that they have won
And it appears that they are right
For no man can overcome their stronghold
“Join us!” they say, “We are strong, and we are one!”
No giant ever seemed so large 
Or logic seemed so sound


I know of One more mighty
His great strength beyond compare
His knowledge of this moment 
Preceded both limb and hair
He laughs at the rebellious 
As they scheme toward a defeat
So easily avoided
Had they simply given heed 
To words from the beginning 
His declaration of peace
For anyone so humble 
To acknowledge their own need
Now we wait His grand return
Though the world around us laughs
And pray that they will likewise 
Before seven trumpet blasts
