The Morning Trumpet

7, 6

B. F. White

Repeat after each line:

Refrain 2:


O when shall I see Jesus,

And reign with him above,

And from the flowing fountain

Drink everlasting love?

When shall I be delivered,

From this vain world of sin,

And with my blessed Jesus,

Drink endless pleasures in?


But now I am a soldier,

My Captain's gone before;

He's given me my orders,

And bids me ne'er give o'er;

His promises are faithful—

A righteous crown he'll give,

And all his valiant soldiers

Eternally shall live.


Through grace I am determined

To conquer, though I die,

And then away to Jesus,

On wings of love I'll fly:

Farewell to sin and sorrow,

I bid them both adieu!

And O, my friends, prove faithful,

And on your way pursue.


Whene'er you meet with troubles

And trials on your way,

Then cast your care on Jesus,

And don't forget to pray.

Gird on the gospel armor

Of faith, and hope, and love,

And when the combat's ended,

He'll carry you above.


O do not be discouraged,

For Jesus is your friend;

And if you lack for knowledge,

He'll not refuse to lend.

Neither will he upbraid you,

Though often you request,

He'll give you grace to conquer,

And take you home to rest.

And shall hear the trumpet sound in that morning.

Shout, O glory! for I shall mount above the skies,

When I hear the trumpet sound in the morning.
