GUEST,Anne Croucher Origins: Babylon is Fallen (to Rise no More) (76* d) RE: Lyr Req: Babylon is Fallen (to Rise no More) 10 Jul 04

I am just trying to sort out the backs of envelopes and discarded printings -
Variations from that sent by Burke -30 March 04 above
watchmen live in peace.
From the distant courts of Zion

Lo they sink to rise no more.
Merchants who have brought her traffic

Lo her captains are returning
Up to Zion see them fly
Whist the Heavenly host rejoicing
Shout and echo through the sky
See the ancients of the city
Terrified at the uproar

Tune your harps ye heavenly choir
Shout ye followers of the lamb
see the city all on fire
clap your hands and fan the flame
Nows the day of compensation
Hope of mercy now is o'er

Blow the trumpet in Mount Zion
Christ shall come a second time
Ruling with a rod of iron
All who now as foes combine
Babels garments we've rejected
And our fellowship is o'er

I make that 7 verses in total
