Chorus:
Let us blow the gospel trumpet,
We’ll blow the gospel trumpet,
Let us blow the gospel trumpet,
Till all the world shall hear.

1 I’ll blow the gospel trumpet
While I am here below;
And publish free salvation,
As through the world I go. [Chorus]

2 Then when my mission’s ended,
And all my work is done’
When God shall call his watchman,
To bring his jewels home. [Chorus]

3 I’ll lay aside my Bible,
And blow the trump no more;
But join my brother watchmen
On Canaan’s happy share. [Chorus]

4 Then blow the gospel trumpet,
Ye servants of the lord;
To every blood-bought spirit,
Proclaim the sacred word. [Chorus]

5 And when the last loud trumpet
Shall welcome us to come,
We’ll bind our sheaves together
And shout the harvest home. [Chorus]

6 Let us blow the gospel trumpet,
We’ll blow the gospel trumpet,
Let us blow the gospel trumpet,
Till all the world shall hear. [Chorus]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
