It was just another day in the life of planet earth
Twenty-four more hours going by
Traffic was heavy and there was a little rain
Babies were born and people died
Up in Alaska it was thirty-one below
Down in Miami it was hot
Honky tonks were crowded and the people partied on
In church a couple tied the knot
The headlines screamed about the rapid spread of AIDS
Famine and war were in the news
An earthquake shook some far off corner of the world
Another child had been abused
Then something happened in the twinkling of an eye
Some watched in horror as a plane fell from the sky
Trains ran wild and cars were crashing there were ships without a captain
Millions of people had just vanished from the earth
Panic and confusion were the order of the day
Grown men were weeping and some people tried to pray
A mocking echo in the madness seemed to say it's too late
And then a stranger stepped on to the TV screen
He said don't worry I'm the one
Who will bring peace to every corner of this earth
And now the world shall be as one
All kings and governments will give their power to me
I'll put a mark in your right hand
For three and one-half years the whole world was at peace
Then darkness fell upon the land
He went into the temple in Jerusalem one day
He said I'm God you all must bow
To the valley of Megiddo came the armies of the world
It looked as though the end was coming now
Then something happened in the twinklin' of an eye
A mighty trumpet blast and in the eastern sky
Came Jesus on a snow white horse leadin' heaven's shining forces
This is the hour of the final victory
The ones who wore the mark were shoutin' Satan you're a liar
As angels bound him up and threw him in the lake of fire
Praises to God's name were ringing all the saints were singing
Hallelujah hallelujah
(Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah
Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah)
