Dan. 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
~ Do You Sleep ~
I walk along as the city sleeps
Amid the ruins someone weeps
No one hears the trebled cry
Hunger fills them, then they die.
Sacrifice a duties call
I want to help; help them all.
On my shoulder a gentle hand
Whispered out where I stand.
“They have died, for my sake
a journey few dare to take.”
Persecuted on the ground
Now their soul is Heaven bound.
“I cannot save the world you see
Man has taken all thought of Me.
I will come back in due time
To have man pay for his savage crime.”
“My children must be fully aware
I hear them calling in fervent prayer.
All who cry out will be heard
That carried faith in my written Word.”
“Though many die while they’re asleep
I hear you all, as Earth does weep.
Do not hate while there you roam
I need you awake, to bring you home.”
Jonah 1:6 So the shipmaster came to him, and said unto him, What meanest thou, O sleeper? arise, call upon thy God, if so be that God will think upon us, that we perish not.
