Signs in the pestilence,
Signs in the ocean’s swell,
Signs in the famine’s death-like stealth,
Th’approaching end foretell.
Signs in the fears of men,
Signs in their rage for war,
Signs in their general armament,
These, last-day tokens are.
Signs in the darkened sun,
Signs in the moon of blood,
Signs in the swiftly falling stars,
Signs all ordained by God.
Signs in the weal and woe
Of Israel gathering home,
Signs in the truth revealed and preached,
The latter days have come.
