The Seven Trumpets: The Last

The Seven Trumpets: Revelation 10:3-11-19

Part Three: The Last

The leonine roar sounds seven secret thunders
Before the world’s city shines the angel of Day
His thundering plan is shrouded in wonders
But it comes now, nothing waiting, no delay
He sends to the world his witnesses to unlock
The gospel’s great weal and woe
The city hangs these two on crosses and mocks
Till they’re raised to ascend from below
The Seventh and last sounds midst shouts and cries
The silence of rage is now stilled
The Destroyer of nations — destruction has died
Earth and heaven are ruled by one will.
The mercy seat is open to both great and small
The Holy of Holies is unveiled for all.
