The trumpet shall sound
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

The trumpet shall sound.

"The trumpet shall sound." (1 Corinthians 15,52)

    1. The trumpet shall sound,
    and fill the world round;
from shore it shall echo to shore;
    the angel shall stand
    with uplifted hand,
proclaiming that time is no more. PDF - Midi

    2. And now shall the tomb
    discharge from its womb
the load it no more can contain;
    the earth and the sea
    the call shall obey,
and give up their myriads of slain.

    3. The Saviour with crowds
    shall come in the clouds;
his glory to all shall appear:
    all power is giv'n,
    in earth and in heav'n,
to him who was crucified here.

    4. Then joy to the saints;
    whatever complaints
attend on their state here below,
    they all in that day
    shall vanish away;
no more shall their tears ever flow.

    5. Their Lord they shall see;
    with him they shall be;
with him in his kingdom above;
    for ever to gaze:
    for ever to praise;
for ever to sing of his love.
