The year was 1844 and something was astir
Because the plucky Millerites thought big things would occur
But when they woke the morning of October 23
They all were disappointed and the cause was clear to see

The flock had played the numbers game and got the math all wrong
And now two centíries later we remember with this song
That if you need a certain way to flee the coming wrath
Then get a guy who knows his stuff before you do the math

Or better yet donít set a date for when things should occur
And donít tell anyone your thoughts no matter if youíre sure
Oh spare a thought for Miller while remembering his plight
For it was he who led the flock that cold October night

The legacy he left behind still haunts us to this day
Though many wish the numbers thing would simply go away
For now instead of saying that the earth was being cleansed
We got the funny notion that the Judgment had commenced

Initiated by the Kingís decree, 457 starting
Then add in seven decades to the true prophetic charting
Subtract 490 from 2 thousand and 3 hundred
Which takes you right up to the end of days divinely numbered

Oh yes, of course, how silly that we never saw beforeÖ
Investigative Judgment starts in 1844
For if you know prophetically a day is like a year
The Sanctuary Doctrine, then, quite readily appears

And with the Prophetís blessing we are certain that itís true
Though other Bible scholars still donít have the slightest clue
Which means that itís our duty to proclaim it to the rest
To prove that weíre the Remnant whose theology is best.

Personally ... I enjoy "The Beverly Hillbillies" as the background music for this one ...
