The three messages

These words said the Master, I'm coming

Representative Text

1 These words, said the Master, "I'm coming again,"
That with me my people forever may reign;
That they may be ready my coming to see,
I send forth my angels with messages three.

The Master is coming, he's coming for thee;
O haste to be ready thy Master to see!
The Master is coming, he's coming for thee;
O haste to be ready thy Master to see!

2 The first with this message was sent through the land;
"Fear God, and give glory; his Judgment's at hand;
And worship the Maker of earth, sea, and sky,
And the fountains of waters, who ruleth on high." [Chorus]

3 The second this message of woe did repeat:
"The Church is not ready her Master to greet;
She's fallen, backslidden, departed from Heav'n,
And her love to earth's kings has unlawfully giv'n." [Chorus]

4 The third message follows, the last to be given,
To point, once again, dying sinners to heav'n:
"If any the beast or his image adore,
On him shall God's judgments abide evermore." [Chorus]

5 The law of the Father, the faith of the Son,
Must be kept by the Church all united as one;
The mark of rebellion refuse to receive,
Be sealed with God's seal, and eternally live. [Chorus]
