"MYSTERY BABYLON"

Verse 1
Carried away in the wilderness, I saw the woman
Upon a seven-headed beast
Full of names of blasphemy!
She was arrayed in purple and scarlet,
And on her forehead was a name
Written, "Mystery!" Oo-oo-oo

Bridge 1
The woman I saw is that great city
Which reigneth over the kings of the earth,
And in her was found he blood of the prophets
And of the saints and all that were slain upon the earth!
Oo-oo-oo

Chorus 1
[A capella]
Mystery Babylon! Mother of harlots
And abominations of the earth,
In one hour is come to naught!

Mystery Babylon! Mother of harlots,
Thus with violence is thrown do-wn
And is found no more at all!

Bridge 2
Her sins have reached the God of Heaven,
And true and righteous are His judgments.
In the cup she hath filled,
Fill to her double!

Chorus 2
Mystery Babylon! Mother of harlots,
And abominations of the ear--th!
Is fallen: Oo--oo--oo

Bridge 3
Rejoice, rejoice over her, thou Heaven,
[Rejoice, rejoice]
And ye holy apostles and prophets,
For the Lord hath avenged you on he-r!

[Repeat Chorus 2]

Chorus 3
Mystery Babylon! Mother of harlots,
And abominations of the ear-th,
In one hour is come to naught!

Mystery Babylon! Mother of harlots,
Thus with violence is thrown do-wn
And is found no more at all!

Mystery Babylon! Mother of harlots
And abominations of the ear-th
Is fallen! Oo-oo-oo --
