Justify My Love [The Beast Within Mix]

Madonna

Blessed is he who reads aloud the words of the prophecy
And blessed are those who hear
And who keep what is written therein
For the time is near

He is coming with the clouds
And every eye will see him
Everyone who pierced him
And all the tribes of the earth will wail on account of him

Those of you who have not learned
What some call the deep things of Satan
I know your works, I know your toil
And your patient endurance
And how you cannot hear evil men

But have tested those who call themselves apostles
But are not and found them to be false
I know that you are enduring patiently
And bearing out for my namesake

And you have not grown weary
But I have this against you
That you have abandoned the love you had

I know your tribulation and your poverty
And the slander of those who say
That they are Jews but they are not
They are a synagogue of Satan
Do not fear what you are about to suffer
Behold the devil is about to throw you into prison

Wanting, needing, waiting for you to justify my love
Hoping, praying for you to justify my love

And I saw a beast rising out of the sea
With ten horns and seven heads
And a blasphemous name upon its head
And the beast that I saw was like a leopard
Its feet were like a bears

And its mouth was like a lion's mouth
And to it the dragon gave his power
And his throne, and great authority
One of his heads had a mortal wound
But it seemed to have a mortal wound that was healed
And the whole earth followed the beast with wonder

Men worshiped the dragon
For he had given his authority to the beast
And they worshiped the beast saying
"Who is like the beast and who can fight against the beast?"

And the beast was given a
Mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words
And it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months
It opened its mouth to utter blasphemous words against God

It was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer
And authority was given it over every tribe
And a people and tongue and nation
And all who dwell on earth could worship it in vain

If anyone has an ear let him hear
If anyone is to be taken captive, into captivity he will go
If anyone who slays with the sword, with the sword

Wanting, needing, waiting for you to justify my love
Hoping

Then, I saw a new heaven and a new earth
And I heard a great voice from the throne saying
"Behold the dwelling of God is with men
He will dwell with them and they shall be his people
And God himself will be with them

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes
And death shall be no more
Neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore
For these things will have passed away

To the thirsty I will give water without price
From the fountain of the water of life
He who conquers shall have this heritage
And I will be his God and he shall be my son

But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted
As for the murderers, fornicators, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars
Their lot shall be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone"

And he said to me, he said to me
"Do not seal up the words of the prophecy
For the time is near, let the evildoers still do evil
And the filthy still be filthy
And the righteous still do right
And the holy still be holy"

"Behold, I am coming soon
I am the alpha and the omega
The first and the last
The beginning and the end"

Amen
What are you gonna do?
