Sound the Gos­pel trumpet forth,
Sound it loud and long;
Come be­fore the King of kings,
With a joy­ful song;
Lo, the glo­ri­ous morn­ing star
Shines with ra­di­ant splen­dor bright,
Bids the na­tions from afar
Hail its wel­come light.


Great is He, the migh­ty Lord,
Countless ag­es are His own;
Sing the tri­umphs of His word,
He is God alone.

Sound the Gos­pel trumpet forth,
Lift our stan­dard high;
Let the sto­ry of the cross
Like an ar­row fly;
Blessèd sto­ry, won­drous love!
We are ran­somed from the fall;
He, who left His throne above
Gave His life for all.


Sound the Gos­pel trum­pet forth,
Shout sal­va­tion free,
Till the truth o’erspread the earth
Like a migh­ty sea;
All shall bow at Je­sus’ name,
Every tongue His pow­er con­fess,
Him their so­ve­reign Lord pro­claim,
Him their right­eous­ness.
