THE TRUMPET SOUND
Waiting, watching, listening for the
Trump to sound announcing Christ
The King...in the twinkling of an eye,
We'll be changed and lifted high, no
Need to pack our bags or grab our
Clothes, we'll meet him in the air...
And be clothed in pure white robes
To be carried home, never more to
Roam, maybe midnight, morning or
Noon, we're not sure when, though
We know he's coming soon, no time
To worry, doubt or fret...be ready for
The trumpet blast, it'll come so fast,
Don't waste your thoughts on sorrow
Or regret, Jesus is coming, it's not too
Late yet, make sure you know where
You'll go, by believing, confessing, and
Receiving the Savior, who forgives your
Sin, he'll give you a new heart...eternity
With him that'll never end; the final story...
Redemption's glory, through Jesus Christ,
LORD of Lords and KING of kings!

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 -- For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with
a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the
dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together
with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be
with the LORD.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
1 Thessalonians 5:7-11 -- Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us
watch and be sober.
For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken
are drunken in the night.
But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate
of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by
our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live
together with him.
Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even
as also ye do.
1 Corinthians 15:50-53 -- Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot
inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall
all be changed,
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for
the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal
must put on immortality.
