Representative Text

1 I know my Lord will come
On some bright day to bear me home;
And I shall meet Him in the sky
In that glad morn sweet by and by,
Now hark! the trumpet soundeth
Over land and sea;
Wake ye sleepers for eternity.

Oh, Savior come for me,
and bear me o’er life’s troubled sea
Oh, Savior come, yes, come for me,
And bear me home to dwell with Thee.

2 In glory will He come
Attendant angels round Him throng;
The heav’nly hosts triumphant sing
In rapt’rous praise to Christ our King,
But hark! the trumpet soundeth
Over land and sea;
Jesus reigns for all eternity. [Chorus]

3 Oh, I must watch and pray
For that blest hour no soul may know;
And I would ever ready be
For Jesus when He calleth me,
And then the trumpet soundeth
Over land and sea;
Child come home for all eternity. [Chorus]
