The Sun Rising Upon a Dark World
Covenanting Adapted to the Moral Constitution of Man.
Your cities by the sea tremble as your pilots cry out in terror.
All the oarsmen abandon their ships; the sailors and pilots on shore come to stand on the beach.

They will stand at a distance, terrified by her great torment. They will cry out, "How terrible, how terrible for you, O Babylon, you great city! In a single moment God's judgment came on you."
