See how the Scriptures are fulfilling,
Poor sinners are returning home,
The time that prophets were foretelling,
With signs and wonders now is come.
The gospel trumpets now are blowing
From sea to sea, from land to land;
God's Holy Spirit down is pouring,
And Christians joining heart and hand.

See how the Scriptures are fulfilling!, Stanza 1
Ten thousand fall before Jehovah,
For mercy, mercy! loud they cry;
They rise, all shouting, "Hallelujah!"
And "Glory be to God on high."
But many cry, "It's all disorder,"
And disbelieve God's holy word;
Yet Christians sing and shout the louder,
"All glory, glory to the Lord."
