1 Watchman Blow The Gospel Trumpet.
Watchman, blow the gospel trumpet,
Evry soul a warning give;
Whosoever hears the message
May repent, and turn, and live.
Blow the trumpet, trusty watchman,
Blow it loud oer land and sea .
(loud oer land and sea)
God commissions, sound the message!
Evry captive may be free.
Sound it loud oer evry hilltop,
Gloomy shade, and sunny plain;
Ocean depths repeat the message,
full salvations glad refrain.
Sound it in the hedge and highway,
Earths dark sports where exiles roam;
Let it tell all things are ready,
Father waits to welcome home.
Sound it for the heavy laden,
Weary, longing to be free.
Sound a Saviours invitation,
Sweetly saying, Come to me.
