"God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet... sing ye praises with understanding" (Psalm 47:5-7). "Sing unto the LORD; for He hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth" (Isaiah 12:5). "Knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep... let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light" (Romans 13:11,12).
Our God has gone up with a shout;
His empty tomb is left behind!
His promise kept removes all doubt,
Rejoicing heart, and soul, and mind!
The Lord ascends with trumpet sound;
The heavens ring with songs of praise!
Behold our risen Savior crowned
And see the triumph He displays!
Sing to the Lord, the King of kings,
Declare our Savior's matchless worth,
For He has done such wondrous things
Which are made known in all the earth!
The time has come to sow and reap!
O may His trumpet call be heard,
For now is not the time to sleep,
But rather for us to be stirred!
The trumpet calls us to the fight
To rescue souls in darkness still.
Put on the armor of God's light
And triumph in His perfect will.
Eternity is just ahead;
Our life on earth shall soon be spent.
Lord, in Your triumph we are led,
And by Your trumpet call we're sent.
Lord, thank You for the trumpet call
To walk in triumph that You give
And grace that lifts us when we fall
That we may for Your glory live.
