Revelation 1:4-6 [German]

John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;

And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

E’en so, Lord Jesus, quickly come (Revelation 1:4; 4:8; 22:20,5) – Paul Manz

Revelation 1:4b,4:8b,22:20b,5a (Text adapted primarily from Revelation 1, 4, 22)

John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;

And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly [some translations: “I am coming soon”]. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

~~

Lyrics (Italics for quoted or paraphrased scripture found) 

Peace be to you and grace from Him / Who freed us from our sin / Who loved us all, and shed his blood / That we might saved be.

Sing holy, holy to our Lord / The Lord almighty God / Who was and is, and is to come / Sing holy, holy Lord.

Rejoice in heaven, all ye that dwell therein / Rejoice on earth, ye saints below / For Christ is coming, Is coming soon / For Christ is coming soon.

E’en so Lord Jesus quickly come / And night shall be no more / They need no light, no lamp, nor sun / For Christ will be their All!

E’en so, Lord Jesus, quickly come (1953) by Paul Manz (1919-2009)
