2And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

3And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.

4And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

5And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

6And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

7And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.


 
 


A note from Steve

This song reminds me of a time when I was between the ages of 5 and 11. I would often travel with my grandfather and watch him preach at funerals in churches and funeral homes on the west side of Chicago. In these services "Just a Closer Walk with Thee" would often be played and sang by the choir and congregation with much feeling and emotion. At times I would even wonder if the dead would actually rise and join in the singing and crying.

In this arrangement I tried to capture the style and the emotion of that era. I also kept the above in mind and tied it to my own musical style. It was back in those days that I received my musical foundation. Currently I have produced 3 versions of this song; two instrumental and one vocal, but the lyrics are in Korean.

Finally the music is meant to be encouragement to you to "cling" to the Son of God as the world moves into "a time of sorrow."
