Wake! and hear the Gospel trumpet,
With a loud and earnest call,
Sounding forth the joyful tidings;
Full salvation free to all.
Swell the song, proclaim the story,
Let the joyful echo ring;
Jesus died the world to ransom,
Jesus lives, our priest and king.
Wake! and hear the Gospel, telling
What redeeming grace has done;
To a feast of love and mercy,
Jesus welcomes every one.
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.
Wake! and hear the Gospel promise,
Unto those that faithful prove,
I will give them life eternal,
They shall dwell with Me in love.
