"MIDNIGHT"

Verse 1
The world, with force, speeds down its course irreversibly;
And as twilight fades to darker shades, it's plain to see
We're passing all the signs that show the course will soon be run,
Counting down 'til all that has been written will be done.
The Last Days are upon us, yes, the countdown has begun.

Verse 2
Whoa, can't you see it's soon to be the 11th hour,
And the final clash of evil men versus God's own Power.
And when the hour glass is turned for the final curtain call,
We'll count the days with certainty until the last grain falls,
Like faithful watchmen on the city walls.

Chorus 1
Midnight will soon be the time.
Midnight, that bell's going to chime.
Let's work the works of Jesus, though the daylight be gone,
'Cause the darkest hour will come just before dawn.

Verse 3
May we strive like the virgins five, lamps burning bright,
'Cause to the unprepared, the Bridegroom comes like a thief at night.
The Planet's fate is already sealed, but what role will you play
In the final act that's been revealed through all the prophets had to say.
Bright cities glowing on the hills, we can help to light the way
'Til Jesus turns the night into midday, hey!

Repeat Chorus

Interlude:

Chorus 2
Midnight will soon be the time
Midnight, that bell's going to chime
Let's work the works of Jesus though the daylight be gone
'Cause the darkest hour will come just before dawn, the dawn!
