The clarion call on silver trumps sound,
Saints asleep and quick ascend from the ground.
Leaving a fallen world, their joy abounds,
Ascending high, angelic greetings found.
Freedom from sin aged flesh, and garbed anew,
Lo, pillars of peace in heavenly hue;
Hosts of winged glory, bright swords imbue;
the pilgrim’s blessed home, the Kingdom true.
Glorious joy erupts from awe-filled hearts,
Beholding saintly friends from finish to start;
Reunion of Father’s family, ne’er to part,
Only then to see fondest cry of our heart:
Forth He comes, regal in His Royal bearing,
Flanked by Cherubim, with wings a’ flaring.
The LORD, the LAMB, the LIGHT of GOD standing:
With Almighty, scarred arms extended and sharing –
Joy unspeakable, full of glory o’erflowing;
Holy Son’s Love enshrined in glorified frame,
Partaking of such, yet ever, ever growing:
in the worshipful Bride’s heart, born of His Name.
Scented in sacredness, Heavenly domain;
Rescued from tears, from scars, from fears and pain,
Delighting in rest, and abundance of peace;
Songs of deliverance which shall never cease.
Around the Throne shall the praises lavish be,
For ages long the grace of the LORD we’ll see,
Bounding e’er upwards, e’er worshipful ecstasy;
For Worthy, Worthy, O Worthy the LAMB is HE!
Home we hope for, for home we weep and do pray,
Be of good cheer, for in this world we shall not stay!
We shine the Light of Gospel Call, to the lost we say:
Look to the Cross, the empty tomb and for that Day,
For the LORD shall come with a shout, and steal His Bride away!
1 Thess 4:16
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God . . .
And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
Dedicated to the HOLY LORD JESUS CHRIST, HE Who is WORTHY of The HIGHEST WORSHIP ETERNALLY!
1 Tim 1:17
Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
