Trumpet of Jesus
Lyrics by Stormie Omartian
Music by Michael Omartian


I listen to the trumpet of Jesus while the world hears a different sound
I march to the drumbeat of God almighty while the others just wander around
I'm a member of the Holy Ghost traveling band
We're moving up to a better land
I hear the voice of a supernatural singer like only those who know him can

One sweet sound makes a whole world of difference when the world seems indifferent to you
His melody of love calls you to be great when marking time was all you thought you could do
So if you've been playing all your days by ear
Never knowing what your songs was to be
Then pull up a chair and let down your hair
And take a few lessons from me.

(Chorus)
A spiritual fanfare has a sound all its own at the birth of a lasting song
It's been two thousand years since Jesus was born and still the celebration goes on
If you feel the need to get your life in tune
Cause you're tired of a dirge every day
then turn yourself around and get your feet on the ground
And just hear what I've got to say

(Chorus)
