Hallelujah; falvation to our God, which

and whence came they?
14. These are they which came out of

great tribulation, and have washed their
robes, and made them white in the blood
of the Lamb.

Therefore are they before the throne
of God, and serve him day and night in


his temple.

remain in the uttermoft parts of the sea ; Even there also shall thy hand lead me :

and thy right hand shall hold me, 10. If I say, Peradventure the darkness shall
