Representative Text

1 O conq’ring host, your leader calls,
On list’ning ears the message falls;
The hour is ripe and grace abounds,
Go forward now, the trumpet sounds.

Refrain:
The trumpet sounds,
The call rings out,
Lift up with joy, the triumph shout,
The trumpet sounds,
It summons you
In Jesus’ name to dare and do.

2 The ranks of evil gather fast,
This golden day will soon be past;
Let not your faith and hope grow dim,
O loyal souls, be strong in Him. [Refrain]

3 Oh, ne’er before as in this day
Were such opposers in array;
But God is near to help and guide,
Stand on the Lord Jehovah’s side. [Refrain]

4 His bugles never sound retreat,
Go forth in faith your God to meet;
When life is o’er and vict’ry won,
You then shall hear your Lord’s “Well done.” [Refrain]
