Representative Text

I heard a great voice from heaven,
Saying unto me, write,
From henceforth, write,
From henceforth, write,
From henceforth, write,
Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord.
Yea, saith the Spirit, for they rest,
For they rest, for they rest, for they rest
For they rest from their labors,
From their labors and their works, which do follow,
Follow, follow, which do follow them.
Which do follow them.
