1. Lo! An angel loud proclaiming,
    With the gospel of good news,
To all kindred, tongue and people,
    “Fear the Lord, give glory due!”
Proclamation to each nation
    Of the hour of judgment near;
Proclamation to each nation
    Of the hour of judgment near.

2. Lo! Another angel follows,
    With another solemn cry,
“Babylon the great is fallen!”
    Peals like thunder thru the sky.
“Come my people, come my people,
    Now forsake her pois’nous creeds;
Come my people, come my people,
    Now forsake her pois’nous creeds.”

3. Yet a third and solemn message
    Sounds a final doom abroad:
“All who worship beast or image
    Soon shall drink the wrath of God!”
Without mixture, without mixture,
    Mercy now no longer pleads;
Without mixture, without mixture,
    Mercy now no longer pleads.

4. Here are they who now are waiting,
    And have patience to endure;
While the dragon’s hosts are raging,
    These confide in God secure;
Faith of Jesus, faith of Jesus,
    And commandments keep them pure;
Faith of Jesus, faith of Jesus,
    And commandments keep them pure.

The first three angel’s messages of Revelation 14:6-12, combined with the angel of Revelation 18:1-4, constitute God’s final message to the world, and the answer to the “image and mark” of the beast power.

All interpreters of prophecy in our day, who do not understand nor proclaim these messages, are not bringing the message of God for our time, and are imposters. They are the “thieves and robbers” Jesus spoke about.

They enter not by the door, which is Jesus, but by “another way.”

But Jesus is the only way, and these 4 messages constitute the voice of Jesus to the sheep of our time. Any other message, though it may say it is from Jesus, is the voice of a false shepherd.

    Just wondering about the music, did you write it or is it from the original hymnal back in the day? Thanks. If so, do you have the notes for it?

  2. pp2300 says:

    Sandy,

    As mentioned in the main page for this section, “This collection only had words, no music was included. So we have tried to compose music that fits to the mood of the hymn-texts.”

    James White’s collections of hymns only had the texts. No music was included. Other than the few Annie Smith songs that have made it to our day, nobody is entirely sure which tunes they used to sing those songs. So we composed new music to fit the texts. I wrote a large majority of these tunes, but a few of my friends from Europe also contributed some tunes.

    You asked also about the notes (or score). Each song has a selection of downloads available: SIB (Sibelius music program), PNG (an image of the hymn), PDF (an Acrobat PDF file of the hymn), EPS (for publishing), MIDI (for use by sequencing programs), XML (for use in other music scoring programs, such as MuseScore), TXT (just the words in text format), MP3 (an audio playback of the music using sampled instrument sounds), and SVG (a new kind of vector image of the hymn, usable in some programs, provided the music fonts are installed).

    You probably want the PDF format to start with, which you can view and print. This will give you the complete hymn with words and music.

    You should see these options for download just below the player component. Let me know if you can’t locate them.

    Hi in the book of James R. Nix, you have a music who was composed by Thomas Hasting (1784-1872) in 1830.

    Do you know it ?

  4. pp2300 says:

    Samy,

    I once had the book, Early Advent Singing by James Nix, but do not have it any longer, so I cannot remember the tune from Hastings that was chosen for those words.

    Hastings, along with Lowell Mason, were strong leaders in the move to reform American religious music away from the British folk tradition to a more classical and cultivated European standard. Wikipedia states it this way:

    Hastings’ 1822 Dissertation on Musical Taste, the first full musical treatise by an American author, was a notable voice in the shift in American music toward the models of German music rather than British; as “one of the first spokespersons for the cultivated tradition of American music,” he emphasized the science and philosophical mission of music above the looser and more folk-based music of his predecessors.

    For myself, I prefer the folk tradition. You can view samples of that style in the songbook, Song in the Night.
