Expository Songs from Revelation 14

Revelation 14:8

And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

This song began as an early American Shaker hymn around 1810. It  made its way into the Sacred Harp hymnal to become a classic in shape-note circles. Eventually, it even picked up some popularity in folk music circles:
