Christ My Song - 1143

'Tis the last trumpet's voice
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

'Tis the last trumpet's voice.

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

1. 'Tis the last trumpet's voice,
  now let the saints rejoice,
        Jesus appears.
'Tis the day looked for long,
  theme of prophetic song;
    angels around him throng,
        our King and theirs. PDF - Midi

2. Jesus, the Lord confessed,
  Jesus, for ever blessed,
        high is his place.
His name all names above,
  symbol of truth and love,
    what man knows nothing of,
        man without grace.

3. What a place now is his!
  Glorious the Saviour is,
        high is his throne.
All eyes behold him now,
  all knees before him bow,
    crowns many grace his brow,
        all is his own.

4. They who are heirs of grace
  now fill their destined place
        near to their King.
Now that their Lord appears,
  he will dry up their tears:
    triumph and joy are theirs;
        henceforth they sing.

5. Numbers unnumbered they;
  "Worthy the Lamb," they say,
        he that was slain.
Fountain of truth and grace,
  saving a ruined race,
    worthy the highest place,
        worthy to reign.

6. Reign then for ever thou,
  Lord, at thy feet we bow;
        thou art our King.
Thy name we now adore,
  thy name all names before,
    thy name for evermore,
        thine will we sing.
