Ancient of Days

You sit upon your throne judging the nations
All the empires of the world face grace or damnation
You will discern and separate between evil and good
And between the sheep and the goats as you promised you would

Some shall  fall under his wrath and condemnation
And those for whom   the lamb drank the cup of separation.

Ancient of days, all of our praise
is directed unto you for all of your ways
All of our knees shall bow by resignation or by choice
We shall lift up your name and shout with one voice-
All blessing and honor and glory and power
Be unto the great I AM
Praise and wisdom and strength
Be unto the lamb!

You told us to do justice and so before a judge that’s just
We shall account for every thing in which we’ve placed our trust.
At the end of history at the time that you’ve appointed 
You’ll send your angel to the lamb- the one that you’ve anointed

Some shall  fall under his wrath and condemnation
And those for whom  the lamb drank the cup of separation.
