Sound of His Trumpet

This is a hymn about Christ as the bridegroom of the church. The author and source are unknown.

At first glance, the language used suggests that it was written prior to the 20th century and so is likely now in the public domain. But a number of videos now on YouTube show that the song is mainly known in India - so it was perhaps translated from another language, or written by someone who has studied English.

This page gives the lyrics in and Malayalam (an Indian language) English.

Lyrics

Sound of His trumpet, thrilling with rapture,
Ushers the bridegroom to us again;
All through the ages, patiently waited
Some are now sleeping, others remain.

Chorus:
Heavenly bridegroom, Heavenly bridegroom,
Welcome my Saviour, hail Thee my king!
Hallelujah! I am rejoicing!
Singing I go like birds on the wing.

Just like a thief thou comest for treasure
Saints from the earth, transported shall be;
Angels from heaven muster with trumpets
Echoing anthems sweetly of Thee.

Radiant with glory, luminous sweets star
Fairer than morning, lovable He;
Higher than heavens, honoured by Father
This is the Lamb slain, even for me.

Saints who are sleeping rise in a twinkling
Rising immortal caught up to Thee;
O, what a gathering! Some from all nations,
Meeting with Jesus in secrecy.

There up in heaven saints for enthroning
Eagerly angels wait for that day;
Bride in her garments, radiant fine linen
Honoured thy Saviour, this is her day.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Sound of His trumpet, thrilling with rapture,
Ushers the bridegroom to us again;
All through the ages, patiently waited
Some are now sleeping, others remain.

Heavenly bridegroom, Heavenly bridegroom,
Welcome my Saviour, hail Thee my king!
Hallelujah! I am rejoicing!
Singing I go like birds on the wing.

Just like a thief thou comest for treasure
Saints from the earth, transported shall be;
Angels from heaven muster with trumpets
Echoing anthems sweetly of Thee.

Radiant with glory, luminous sweets star
Fairer than morning, lovable He;
Higher than heavens, honoured by Father
This is the Lamb slain, even for me.

Saints who are sleeping rise in a twinkling
Rising immortal caught up to Thee;
O, what a gathering! Some from all nations,
Meeting with Jesus in secrecy.

There up in heaven saints for enthroning
Eagerly angels wait for that day;
Bride in her garments, radiant fine linen
Honoured thy Saviour, this is her day.
