Prophecy is the legacy of the sons of Adam
Do not mistake God's mercy for common wisdom
All truth is of God, given free as warning
All who deny are liars rewarded with mourning

Prophecy is proof, there will be no doubt....
We are not gods, we know nothing
We commend ourselves and toil self-righteous ground
We will know who's in control
When God returns and removes all doubt

The earth and sea may groan, the sky may burn like fire
But the prophets wrote an eternal reminder
As lightning strikes the east and shows in the west
So shall His return be for His faithful who stand the test

I like the accompaniment.
Nice guitar and bass tone. Good production skills.
Vocals were well done too.

The lyrics seem to be an afterthought.
Curious about your process. I'm guessing you came up
with the music and then needed to add words?

Seems to be a lot of unconnected thoughts.
Doesn't really minister to the spirit. The lines even seem pseudo-biblical.
As if you are using biblical sounding words but not really saying anything.

Bottom line:
I found the accompaniment to be reasonably inspiring.
But the lyrics did nothing for me.

Lol... no, I actually wrote the lyrics intent on punctuating prophecy as the proof of God's word... and defining Christianity through the fulfillment of prophecy. I'm definitely a lyrics first guy, I need to have something worth singing about... :)

I like the lyrics. The music to me seemed to come second, but fit just fine for me. I really liked this, The only thing I would maybe change is adding some repetition.

@Andrea
Hmmm... Do you have something specific in mind?

Hmm... maybe a chorus:

Prophecy is the legacy
The promise of a Redeemer
Prophecy is proof
For all those who are believers

I think I understand what you're saying Andrea.
You're talking about a typical repetitive "raise your hands and worship" type chorus...

Lol... I've actually been thinking about this for a while now. To me, the word "prophecy" just doesn't inspire worship. However, I believe "promise" has potential. In fact, I believe in promise! Let's write another song :)

A legacy of promise
An eternity that's real
The time is upon us
Gods Word, God's Will...

I am sorry. I see I dropped the ball here. Let's resume if you wish.

Do you wish to write an entirely new song, or one that doesn't include prophecies?
