789. As drowsy earth is dreaming still

1 As drowsy earth is dreaming still
Of coming good and golden days,
An angel voice the heavens thrill:
Fear God, ye people, give him praise;

2 The long-appointed Judgment hour
Is come at last; worship ye him
Who by his own almighty power
Made heaven, earth, sea, and gushing stream.

3 Another cry the earth doth greet,
The second angel's voice divine:
Great Babel's fall is now complete;
Nations are drunken with her wine.

4 Now the third angel's voice resounds,
A final, fearful, warning voice
Against false worship; and propounds
God's word and worship for men's choice.

5 Here saints in patience waiting stand,
Through faith obedient to God's will,
Fulfilling each divine command
Till called to stand on Zion's hill.
