When the trumpet sounds

I know my Redeemer

Lives on high

The One who created

Earth, heavens and sky

I know my Creator

Doesn't sleep or slumber

The One who created

Rainbows and thunder

I know my Savior

Never lies nor sins

Just by his voice

Life once again begins

I know my Intercessor

Pleads for my mistakes

The One who made

Rivers, dams and lakes

I know that one day

I will see Him in the clouds

He will come with his angels

When the trumpet sounds
