Power metal is spiritual

Poster: Hank @ Fri Jun 20, 2008 8:53 am

Here's th' text of th' best spiritual written since 1950, Larry Sparks' "The Testing Times." To my knowledge and surprise, this has never been transcribed. Note that most of this could equally be an Iron Maiden lyric.

The testing times
Are just ahead
For the children of the King :
Just press along
And do not dread
But pray, and shout and sing

The time of sorrow
It will come
When the beast shall arise
And set his god upon the throne
To deceive the blinded eye

And what that beast
May be to me
No mortal can tell
But if we do not take his mark
We can not buy or sell.

Our children, they
May cry for help
And some of us will die
But, praise the Lord
I'll trust in one
Who rules the range on high

His children he
Will not forsake
And when he hears his own crying out
In agony
The Son will leave his throne

His angels He will bring with Him
And send them East and West
And North and South
To gather in
The ones that stood with Him

Oh won't you come, and go with me
The transportation's free
Christ Jesus paid the debt for all
On dark Mount Calvary
