1 The trumpet of God
Is sounding abroad,
The language of mercy, salvation through blood.
2 Thrice happy are they
Who hear and obey,
And share in the blessing of this gospel-day.
3 Their anguish and smart,
And sorrow depart
Who find this salvation inscribed on their heart.
4 True pleasures abound
In the rapturous sound,
And they that have found it have Paradise found.
5 Our Jesus to know,
And feel his blood flow,
'Tis life everlasting, 'tis heaven below.
6 This blessing be mine
Through favor divine;
But, O my Redeemer! the glory be thine.
