Hark! A trumpet-call is sounding

Hark! a trumpet-call is sounding,
‘Christ is near,’ it seems to say:
‘cast away the dreams of darkness,
children of the dawning day!’

2. Wakened by the solemn warning,
let our earth-bound souls arise;
Christ, our sun, all harm dispelling,
shines upon the morning skies.

3. See! the Lamb, so long expected,
comes with pardon down from heaven;
let us haste, with tears of sorrow,
one and all to be forgiven:

4. That, when next he comes with glory
and the world is wrapped in fear,
with his mercy he may shield us
and with words of love draw near.

5. Honour, glory, might and blessing
to the Father, and the Son,
with the everlasting Spirit,
while eternal ages run!
