Representative Text

1 Sound the trumpet thro' the land,
At the gates of Zion stand;
All the debt of sin is paid,
Christ is on the altar laid.

Full redemption now proclaim,
Pardon free in Jesus’ name;
God’s atoning work is done;
Tell the tidings, every one.

2 Sound the trumpet loud and clear,
Send its echoes far and near;
Tell the dying sons of men,
Life has come to earth again. [Refrain]

3 Sound the trumpet; let it bring
Hope and love like breath of spring;
Never came a sweeter tone
From the height of Mercy’s throne. [Refrain]
