II Peter 3:10

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

The chorus for this dramatic retelling of the Second Coming is drawn from the first part of II Peter 3:10:
