1 ‘Behold, I am coming soon’, says the Lord,
‘and bringing my reward with me, ♦
to give to everyone according to their deeds.
2 ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, ♦
the beginning and the end.’
3 Blessed are those who do God’s commandments,
that they may have the right to the tree of life, ♦
and may enter into the city through the gates.
4 ‘I, Jesus, have sent my angel to you, ♦
with this testimony for all the churches.
5 ‘I am the root and the offspring of David, ♦
I am the bright morning star.’
6 ‘Come!’ say the Spirit and the Bride; ♦
‘Come!’ let each hearer reply!
7 Come forward, you who are thirsty, ♦
let those who desire take the water of life as a gift.
Revelation 22.12–14, 16, 17
Surely I am coming soon! ♦
Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!
