When the Almond tree shall blossom
God will wake to show his hand
Then the branch of God is ready
To accomplish his demand.
In the pot the time of seething
In that day he'll flood the land.
For the boiling of God's judgment
Will be a chastening on man.
“God will hasten to perform it”
Every word of God will stand.
Gird your loins be made ready
Tell the world the days at hand.
Give the gospel to your neighbor
All the people of the land.
For the wrath of God is coming
To judge the sinful heart of man.
