1 Blow ye the trumpet, all ye Zion’s host,
Sound the alarm o’er ev’ry hill and plain,
Till all nations the warning message shall have heard
That Jesus is coming again!

He’s coming again,
O Zion’s glorious King!
He’s coming again,
And reward for our labor He’ll bring.

2 Send out the message over land and sea,
Let all the earth take up the glad refrain,
Soon His glory transcendent ev’ry eye shall see,
When Jesus to earth comes again. [Refrain]

3 O then prepare to meet the coming King!
Washed in His blood with garments pure and white,
For a crown of rejoicing He will with Him bring
For all who have fought the good fight. [Refrain]
