THE MAN CAME AROUND

BOW DOWN BEFORE THE THRONE

There's a man goin' 'round takin' names,

And he decides who to free and who to blame.

Everybody won't be treated all the same,

There'll be a golden ladder reachin' down.

When the man comes around.

Clowney

The hairs on your arm will stand up,

At the terror in each sip and in each sup.

Will you partake of that last offered cup,

Or disappear into the potter's ground?

When the man comes around.

Clowney

Hear the trumpets hear the pipers.

One hundred million angels singin'.

Multitudes are marchin' to the big kettledrum.

Voices callin', voices cryin'.

Some are born and some are dyin'.

It's alpha and omega's kingdom come,

And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree.

The virgins are all trimming their wicks,

The whirlwind is in the thorn tree.

It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks,

Clowney

Till Armageddon no shalam, no shalom.

Then the father hen will call his chickens home,

The wise man will bow down before the throne.

And at his feet they'll cast their golden crowns,

When the man comes around.

Clowney

Whoever is unjust let him be unjust still.

Whoever is righteous let him be righteous still.

Whoever is filthy let him be filthy still.

Listen to the words long written down,

When the man comes around.

Clowney

Hear the trumpets hear the pipers.

One hundred million angels singin'.

Multitudes are marchin' to the big kettledrum.

Voices callin', voices cryin'.

Some are born and some are dyin'.

It's alpha and omega's kingdom come,

And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree.

The virgins are all trimming their wicks,

The whirlwind is in the thorn trees.

It's hard for thee to kick against the prick,

In measured hundredweight and penny pound,

When the man comes around.
