Behold the awful trumpet sounds

Full Text

1 Behold the awful trumpet sounds,
The sleeping dead to raise,
And calls the nations under ground;
O how the saints will praise!

2 Behold the Savior how he comes
Descending from his throne,
To burst asunder all our tombs,
And lead his children home.

3 But who can bear that dreadful day,
To see the world in flames;
The burning mountains melt away,
While rocks run down in streams.

4 The falling stars their orbits leave,
The sun in darkness hide;
The elements asunder cleave,
The moon turned into blood.

5 Behold the universal world
In consternation stand,
The wicked into hell are turned
The saints at God's right hand.

6 O then the music will begin,
Their Saviour God to praise;
They are all freed from every sin,
And thus they'll spend their days.
