1 We sing His love, who once was slain,
Who soon o'er death revived again,
That all His saints through Him might have
Eternal conquests o'er the grave:
Soon shall the trumpets sound, and we
Shall rise to immortality.

2 The saints who now with Jesus sleep
His own almighty power shall keep,
Till dawns the bright illustrious day
When death itself shall die away:
Soon shall the trumpets sound, and we
Shall rise to immortality.

3 How loud shall our glad voices sing,
When Christ His risen saints shall bring,
From beds of dust and silent clay,
To realms of everlasting day!
Soon shall the trumpets sound, and we
Shall rise to immortality.

4 When Jesus we in glory meet,
Our utmost joy shall be complete;
When landed on that heavenly shore,
Death and the curse shall be no more:
Soon shall the trumpets sound, and we
Shall rise to immortality.

5 Hasten, dear Lord, the glorious day,
And this delightful scene display,
When all Thy saints from death shall rise
Raptured in bliss beyond the skies:
Soon shall the trumpets sound, and we
Shall rise to immortality.

Amen.
