You gather every stick to throw in the fire
Bundles and bundles, piled higher, still higher
Across the whole Earth, You’ve bundled them all
Into the fire when You’ve given the call
Light, heat, and smoke
The bundles will burn
Yet Your hallowed, holy hand is outstretched still
You pluck out the brands by Your Sovereign goodwill
As Your servant in soot obeys Your command
He lifts up his heart as he bundles with bands
Light, heat, and smoke
The bundles will burn

“Babylon, my greatness! My royal abode!
My daughter, my harlot, my majesty showed
By my might, by my hand, I’ve stacked up this hill
And for my majesty, their blood will be spilled.”
Light, heat, and smoke
The bundles will burn
Hell is prepared for the Devil and his angels:
They are his dark workmen, of whom Satan compels
To work for their king and proclaim who he is
Who obey his command and do what he says
Light, heat, and smoke
The bundles will burn

But from the bundles, from the sticks of the Earth
The Lord has saved peoples by His holy worth
He Elected them for Him, to spread His Good News
Saving all kinds of persons, from Gentiles and Jews
From dark trials and lies
His people are saved
Then, to show the whole world His sovereign hand
The Lord gave His peoples work for their lands
“To glorify God and enjoy Him forever.”
Revealing God’s wisdom in all His endeavours
From dark trials and lies
His people are saved

Though Satan should strike and afflict Jesus’ foot
Christ Jesus has trampled that servant of soot
God’s people need only submit to their King
Who binds up the strong man that peoples may sing:
From dark trials and lies
His people are saved
Though the dark serpent has venomous tongue
He can’t set a trap which cannot be sprung
Yahweh saves all His people from snares in the dark
By granting the Spirit Whose Light is a birthmark
From dark trials and lies
His people are saved
