Representative Text

1. Wake! and hear the gospel trumpet,
With a loud and earnest call,
To a feast of love and mercy,
Jesus welcomes ev'ry one.

Swell the song, proclaim the story,
Let the joyful echo ring;
Jesus died the world to ransom,
Jesus lives, our Priest and King.

2. Wake!! and hear the gospel, telling
What redeeming grace has done;
To a feast of love and mercy,
Jesus welcomes ev'ry one. [Chorus]

3. Wake! and hear the gospel mandate
Fight against the host of sin;
Join the ranks that now are marching,
Precious souls for Christ to win. [Chorus]

4. Wake! and hear the gospel promise,
Unto those that faithful prove,
"I will give them life eternal,
They shall dwell with me in love." [Chorus]
