Title: The Watchman Blows the Trumpet Loud
Meter: 8 6 8 6 D
Topic: prophets, Second Coming

1.
The watchman blows the trumpet loud
To warn all wicked ones
The lying and the crafty proud
Among all daughters, sons.

To turn from wickedness at last
Both urgent and with care
The watchman warns till time is passed
So that we may prepare.

2.
The watchman blows the trumpet long,
To wake the world from sleep.
To call to action all the strong,
Who the commandments keep.

To gather all of God’s elect,
From ev’ry isle and land,
That Zion’s walls may them protect,
For judgment is at hand.

3.
The watchman blows the trumpet clear,
That all may understand.
The final time is drawing near,
Just as our God has planned.

Now listen to the watchman’s call,
While there is time to heed.
For now its sound is over all,
None shall God’s work impede.
