Representative Text

1 Hear the loud trumpet-call,
That is sounding for all
Who for Jesus are bravely contending;
From the morn to the night
Let us urge on the fight,
The cause of our Saviour defending.

Let us heed the trumpet call,
Sounding far, to one and all;
Lend a hand, a heart and voice,
Right will win, rejoice, rejoice.

2 Tho’ the ranks of foe
Into battle may go,
And may threaten the cause of our Master,
They shall certainly meet
With a signal defeat,
And shall fly from the field of disaster. [Refrain]

3 Let us trust in the word
Of our conquering Lord,
Let us question His promises never;
We shall scatter the foe,
If believing we go,
He will lead us to victory ever. [Refrain]
