“After this I had a vision of a great multitude,
which no one could count, from every nation,
race, people, and tongue. They stood before the
throne and before the Lamb, wearing white
robes... They cried out; ‘Salvation comes from
our God, who is seated on the throne,
and from the Lamb.’” (Revelations 7)
