Representative Text

1 Sound the Gospel trumpet forth,
Sound it loud and long;
Come before the King of kings,
With a joyful song;
Lo, the glorious morning star
Shines with radiant splendor bright,
Bids the nations from afar
Hail its welcome light.

Great is He, the mighty Lord,
Countless ages are His own;
Sing the triumphs of His word,
He is God alone.

2 Sound the Gospel trumpet forth,
Lift our standard high;
Let the story of the cross
Like an arrow fly;
Blessèd story, wondrous love!
We are ransomed from the fall;
He, who left His throne above
Gave His life for all. [Refrain]

3 Sound the Gospel trumpet forth,
Shout salvation free,
Till the truth o’erspread the earth
Like a mighty sea;
All shall bow at Jesus’ name,
Every tongue His power confess,
Him their sovereign Lord proclaim,
Him their righteousness. [Refrain]
