inspired by 2Peter 3:10.

Gather Yourself

gather yourself
for the storm is coming
it is awakening as I speak
slumber's over; hell's taken over
and we'll be left cold and weak.

gather yourself
for the wind is blowing
it comes from the Northeast
sowing is done; reaping's begun
a time for slaying the beast.

gather yourself
for the lightning is striking
bringing fire that burns to bare
ashes to ashes, dust to dust
and we shall ne're be there.

gather yourself
for the thunder is roaring
shaking the stars from Heaven's floor
crash to the ground; the world falls down
a time for nevermore

gather yourself
for the rain is falling
it cleanses the filth of the earth
death is over; new life takes over
and our savior brings new birth.

gather together
for the sun is shining
it brings hope for eternity
lift up your eyes; see new skies
a time where spirits fly free!
