|When He bloweth a trumpet, hear ye. For so the Lord said unto me, I will take My rest. (Isa. 18:3‑4)
|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. (1 Thess. 4:16)
|What cheering words are these!
Their sweetness who can tell?
In time and to eternal days —
’Tis with believers well!
|But above all, how well
When Jesus speaks the word,
And, at the trumpet’s sounding swell,
They rise to meet their Lord!
