838 (C.M.) William Cameron

When the last trumpet's awful voice

This rending earth shall shake;

When op'ning graves shall yield their charge

And dust to life awake;

Those bodies that corrupted fell

Shall incorrupt arise,

And mortal forms shall spring to life

Immortal in the skies.

Behold, what heavenly prophets sung

Is now at last fulfilled;

That death should yield his ancient reign

And vanquished, quit the field.

Let Faith exalt her joyful voice,

And thus begin to sing:

"O Grave, where is thy triumph now?

And where, O Death, thy sting?"
