The Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first.@1 Thessalonians 4:16

In the resurrection morning
We will see the Savior coming,
And the sons of God a-shouting
In the kingdom of the Lord.

Refrain

When the trump of God shall sound,
When the trump of God shall sound,
It shall wake the sleeping nations,
When the trump of God shall sound!
The dead in Christ shall rise,
The dead in Christ shall rise.

We feel the advent glory
While the vision seems to tarry,
We will comfort one another
With the words of Holy Writ.

Refrain

By faith we can discover
That our warfare’ll soon be over,
And we’ll shortly hail each other
On fair Heaven’s happy shore.

Refrain

We will tell the pleasing story
When we meet our friends in glory,
And we’ll keep ourselves all ready
For to hail the heav’nly King.
