Representative Text

1 Lift the voice and sound the trumpet,
Watcher on the mountain hight,
Roll the clarion notes around thee,
Shout, as fleets the passing night.
Lift the voice in words of warning,
Wake the slumbering hosts below,
Cry aloud, "Behold the dawning!"
Rouse, and gird to meet the foe!

2 Lift the voice! Lo, weak and dying,
Warriors, struggling, faint and fall;
Bid them fight! on God relying;
Jesus comes to conquer all!
Lift the voice in notes of gladness,
Ring the shout along the sky,
Cease your tears, ye sons of sadness,
Sing! rejoice! your God is nigh.

3 Lift the voice like music blended
With heart-healing minstrelsy;
Cry, thy warfare now is ended;
Lo, thy Saviour comes to thee!
Soon beyond time's night of sadness,
Watchmen, ye shall joyful sing;
Eye to eye shall see with gladness,
When the Lord shall Zion bring.
