Sound the alarm Let the watchman cry




Sound the alarm!
Let the watchman cry!
“Up! for the day
of the Lord is nigh;
Who will escape
from the wrath to come?
Who have a place
in the soul’s bright home?”

Sound the alarm, watchman!
Sound the alarm!
For the Lord will come
with a conqu’ring arm;
And the hosts of sin,
as their ranks advance,
Shall wither and fall at His glance.



Sound the alarm!
Let the cry go forth,
Swift as the wind,
o’er the realms of earth;
“Flee to the Rock
where the soul may hide!
Flee to the Rock!
in its cleft abide!”

Sound the alarm, watchman!
Sound the alarm!
For the Lord will come
with a conqu’ring arm;
And the hosts of sin,
as their ranks advance,
Shall wither and fall at His glance.



Sound the alarm on
the mountain’s brow!
Plead with the lost
by the wayside now:
Warn them to come
and the truth embrace;
Urge them to come
and be saved by grace.

Sound the alarm, watchman!
Sound the alarm!
For the Lord will come
with a conqu’ring arm;
And the hosts of sin,
as their ranks advance,
Shall wither and fall at His glance.



Sound the alarm
in the youthful ear;
Sound it aloud that
the old may hear;
Blow ye the trump
while the day-beams last!
Blow ye the trump
till the light is past!

Sound the alarm, watchman!
Sound the alarm!
For the Lord will come
with a conqu’ring arm;
And the hosts of sin,
as their ranks advance,
Shall wither and fall at His glance.
