Have you heard the new song? that most beautiful song,
The song which the saints now may sing—
How the old harp of Moses and sweet flute of John
With harmonious melody ring?
‘Tis the song of the Lamb once by Moses foretold,
In the symbols and types of God’s law;
As the dawn of the day doth those symbols unfold,
We behold what we ne’er before saw,
O! what visions of glory are brought to faith’s view,
Of glory which all soon shall see;
For the great King of Glory shall make all things new,
And O! what rejoicing there’ll be.
Thy works great and marvelous, Almighty Lord,
Are glorious indeed in our sight;
Thy ways just and true, Thou blest King of the world,
We acknowledge are perfectly right.
O! who shall not filially fear Thee, O Lord,
And Thy righteous ways own as the best?
Soon all nations shall worship and praise before Thee,
When Thy judgments are made manifest.
Tune your voices, ye saints, for this glorious strain,
And earth shall with melody ring;
Let the grand “harp of God” loudly swell the refrain,
For tributes of praise all may bring.
God’s Word is that harp, which has long been unstrung,
And men heard but discordant its notes;
Now as tuned are its chords from Moses to John,
How grandly sweet melody floats.
It will float o’er the world in a rapturous strain,
Of glory and peace and good will,
And all then shall hear and may join the refrain
And joy shall the hearts of all thrill

Revelation 15 (ESV)
The Seven Angels with Seven Plagues
(1) Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and amazing, seven angels with seven plagues, which are the last, for with them the wrath of God is finished.
(2) And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mingled with fire—and also those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name, standing beside the sea of glass with harps of God in their hands.
(3) And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying,
“Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations!
(4) Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship you, for your righteous acts have been revealed.”
(5) After this I looked, and the sanctuary of the tent of witness in heaven was opened,
(6) and out of the sanctuary came the seven angels with the seven plagues, clothed in pure, bright linen, with golden sashes around their chests.
(7) And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever,
(8) and the sanctuary was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power, and no one could enter the sanctuary until the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished.
Exodus 15: 1-21 (ESV)
The Song of Moses
(1) Then Moses and the people of Israel sang this song to the Lord, saying,
“I will sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously;
the horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea.
(2) The Lord is my strength and my song,
and he has become my salvation;
this is my God, and I will praise him,
my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
(3) The Lord is a man of war;
the Lord is his name.
(4) “Pharaoh’s chariots and his host he cast into the sea,
and his chosen officers were sunk in the Red Sea.
(5) The floods covered them;
they went down into the depths like a stone.
(6) Your right hand, O Lord, glorious in power,
your right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.
(7) In the greatness of your majesty you overthrow your adversaries;
you send out your fury; it consumes them like stubble.
(8) At the blast of your nostrils the waters piled up;
the floods stood up in a heap;nthe deeps congealed in the heart of the sea.
(9) The enemy said, ‘I will pursue, I will overtake,
I will divide the spoil, my desire shall have its fill of them.
I will draw my sword; my hand shall destroy them.’
(10) You blew with your wind; the sea covered them;
they sank like lead in the mighty waters.
(11) “Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods?
Who is like you, majestic in holiness,
awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders?
(12) You stretched out your right hand;
the earth swallowed them.
(13) “You have led in your steadfast love the people whom you have redeemed;
you have guided them by your strength to your holy abode.
(14) The peoples have heard; they tremble;
pangs have seized the inhabitants of Philistia.
(15) Now are the chiefs of Edom dismayed;
trembling seizes the leaders of Moab;
all the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away.
(16) Terror and dread fall upon them;
because of the greatness of your arm, they are still as a stone,
till your people, O Lord, pass by,
till the people pass by whom you have purchased.
(17) You will bring them in and plant them on your own mountain,
the place, O Lord, which you have made for your abode,
the sanctuary, O Lord, which your hands have established.
(18) The Lord will reign forever and ever.”
(19) For when the horses of Pharaoh with his chariots and his horsemen went into the sea, the Lord brought back the waters of the sea upon them, but the people of Israel walked on dry ground in the midst of the sea.
(20) Then Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women went out after her with tambourines and dancing.
(21) And Miriam sang to them:
“Sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously;
the horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea.”
