      A Revelator song notable for its classic uses of balance and incremental repetition, for its fusion of New Testament apocalyptic images, its folk diction and syntax fitted out as pulpit rhetoric and prophecy, and its sensitivity to simultaneously occurring dimensions of time and space.
      The vision of the speaker, superimposed on the apocalyptic vision of John the Revelator, includes all time and eternity: the remote past during which the Revelator, from exile on Patmos, wrote his letters to the seven churches; the immediate past of the dead mother who now dwells on the island with the prophet; the present of the "leader" or preacher who, as head of the church to which the speaker belongs, has received a "letter"—the Book of Revelation itself—from John; the eternal present in which the speaker and the prophet coexist spiritually; and the rapidly approaching future, the last days which John prophesied.
