One day we’ll hear the trumpet sound

One day we’ll hear the trumpet sound,
the shout will echo all around!
Christ is coming! Hallelujah!
The skies will open for our King,
all those who love him gladly sing,
Lord, come quickly! Hallelujah!
O praise him! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

2. Archangel’s voice calls from the skies,
and first the dead in Christ will rise.
Christ is coming! Hallelujah!
Then we will meet him in the air,
and every eye will see him there.
Lord, come quickly! Hallelujah!
O praise him! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

3. All those who love him will rejoice
at Jesus’ lovely face and voice.
Christ is coming! Hallelujah!
Our every longing satisfied—
our King returns to claim his bride!
Lord, come quickly! Hallelujah!
O praise him! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

4. The end of sorrow, pains and fears,
for God himself will dry our tears.
Christ is coming! Hallelujah!
With pleasures there for endless days,
we’ll dwell in ceaseless joy and praise.
Lord, come quickly! Hallelujah!
O praise him! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

5. So live as children of the light,
assured our future is so bright.
Christ is coming! Hallelujah!
Let faith and love our armour be
till that bright dawn we gladly see.
Lord, come quickly! Hallelujah!
O praise him! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
