Yet now still all creation groans to be redeemed by Love, That gives new life to dried up bones through Spirit from above. For th’ancient serpent, devil-worm, who lost in heaven’s war Still rages here on earth a-storm with Babylon his whore. Their lust for blood, their ardent hate of all the woman’s seed, Demands that they exterminate mankind in drunken greed. Before the throne of God the saints are witnesses and weep, Rejoicing midst their tearful ‘plaints with martyr’s victory leap. Who rides upon the wings of light still wrapped in clouds and thunder? The Servant-King returns in might to tear the skies asunder. A trumpet calls, the angels sing and ride in heavenly power. When all the world has seen the King his enemies shall cower. His glory shining forth resplendid shall fill the sea and earth And all our woe and wounds be mended by Him of virgin birth.
