Music: Fest­al Song, , in the Epis­co­pal Hymn­al with Tunes Old and New, by John Ire­land Tuck­er, 1872.

If you know when this hymn was writ­ten, or where to get a pho­to of Will­iam Wal­ter

Soon shall the trump of God
Give out the welcome sound,
That shakes death’s silent chamber walls,
And breaks the turf-sealed ground.

You dwellers in the dust,
Awake, come forth, and sing;
Sharp has your frost of winter been,
But bright shall be your spring.

’Twas sown in weakness here;
’Twill then be raised in power;
That which was sown an earthly seed
Shall rise a heav’nly flower.
