The Trumpet Of God Is Sounding Abroad

The trumpet of God
Is sounding abroad,
The language of mercy, salvation through blood.

Thrice happy are they
Who hear and obey,
And share in the blessing of this gospel-day.

Their anguish and smart,
And sorrow depart
Who find this salvation inscribed on their heart.

True pleasures abound
In the rapturous sound,
And they that have found it have Paradise found.

Our Jesus to know,
And feel his blood flow,
‘Tis life everlasting, ’tis heaven below.

This blessing be mine
Through favor divine;
But, O my Redeemer! the glory be thine.
