“The great trumpet shall be blown.” Isa. 27. 13

C. Cole                      L.M.

1
Hark! how the gospel trumpet sounds!
Christ and free grace therein abounds;
Free grace to such as sinners be;
And if free grace, why not for me?

2
The Saviour died, and by his blood
Brought rebel sinners near to God;
He died to set the captives free;
And why, my soul, why not for thee?

3
The blood of Christ, how sweet it sounds,
To cleanse and heal the sinner’s wounds!
The streams thereof are rich and free;
And why, my soul, why not for thee?

4
Thus Jesus came the poor to bless,
To clothe them with his righteousness;
The robe is spotless, full, and free;
And why, my soul, why not for thee?

5
Eternal life by Christ is given,
And ruined rebels raised to heaven,
Then sing of grace so rich and free,
And say, my soul, why not for thee?
