Seven Trumpets

From the clouds, an angel blows a horn.
Storm of hail and fire burns trees
and wipes away a land that’s scorned.

But we are given no time to mourn
as blood spreads throughout the seas.
From the clouds, an angel blows a horn.

A star falls, no one will warn,
poison brings men to their knees
and wipes away a land that’s scorned.

The fourth trumpets brings a day stillborn
to the hearts of those the night will seize.
From the clouds, an angel blows a horn.

Before the last trumpet sounds are born,
an angel fills hearts with more unease
and wipes away a land that’s scorned.

The locusts came, lives were torn,
the four horsemen ride to Euphrates.
From the clouds, an angel blows a horn
and wipes away a land that’s scorned.
