1 When the trump of God shall sound,
From the lonely grave and mound,
On the resurrection morning we shall rise;
From the grave forever free,
Clothed with immortality,
On the resurrection morning we shall rise.

Refrain:
On the resurrection morning we shall rise,
And together meet the Savior in the skies,
From the grave forever free,
Clothed with immortality,
On the resurrection morning we shall rise.

2 Martyred millions who were slain,
Shall come forth with Christ to reign—
On the resurrection morning we shall rise;
Patriarchs and sages old
Will arise from dust and mold,
On the resurrection morning we shall rise. [Refrain]

3 Those who left us years ago,
We shall meet again and know—
On the resurrection morning we shall rise;
Death has lost its dreaded sting,
With triumphant joy we sing,
On the resurrection morning we shall rise. [Refrain]

4 If the Lord should come today,
With a thrill our hearts can say,
On the resurrection morning we shall rise;
For the living who remain,
Shall be caught up without pain,
On the resurrection morning we shall rise. [Refrain]
