I saw heaven standing open
and there before me was a white horse,
whose rider is called Faithful and True.
With justice he judges and makes war.
His eyes are like blazing fire,
and on his head are many crowns.
He has a name written on him
that no one knows but himself.
He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood,
and his name is the Word of God.
The armies of heaven were following him,
riding on white horses
and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.
Out of his mouth
comes a sharp sword
with which to strike down the nations.
He will rule them with an iron scepter.
He treads the winepress of the fury
of the wrath of God Almighty.
On his robe and on his thigh
he has this name written:
KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
