God's trumpet wakes the slumbering




God’s trumpet wakes
the slumbering world;
Now each man to his post!
The red cross banner is unfurled;
|:Who joins the glorious host?:|


He who, in fealty to the truth,
Not counting all the cost,
Doth consecrate his generous youth,
|:He joins the noble host.:|


He who, no anger on his tongue,
Nor any idle boast,
Bears steadfast witness
’gainst the wrong,
|:He joins the sacred host.:|


He who, with calm, undaunted will,
Ne’er counts the battle lost,
But, though defeated, battles still,
|:He joins the faithful host.:|


He who is ready for the cross,
The cause despised loves most,
And shuns not pain,
nor shame, nor loss,
|:He joins the martyr host.:|


God’s trumpet wakes
the slumbering world;
Now each man to his post!
The red cross banner is unfurled;
|:We join the glorious host.:|
