And I saw another angel
And I saw another angel, ascending from the east,
having the seal of the living God;
and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, saying,
Hurt not the earth neither the sea, nor the trees,
till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
And lo, a great multitude, which no man could number,
of all nations and kindreds and people, and tongues,
stood before the throne and before the Lamb,
clothed with white robes, and palms were in their hands;
And cried with a loud voice, saying,
Salvation to our God, which sitteth upon the throne,
and unto the Lamb. Amen.
Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving,
and honour, and power, and might
be unto our God for ever and ever.
Charles Villiers Stanford (1852-1924)
