"BLOW THE TRUMPET, BEAT THE DRUM"

Chorus:
Blow the trumpet and beat the drum,
Set all the bells in the steeple ringing.
Blow the trumpet and beat the drum,
Tell the world that the Lord has come!

[Repeat Chorus]

Through four thousand years of night
There were priests and prophets singing,
Through four thousand years of night,
"He will come with the morning light,"

[Repeat Chorus]

O how charming, O how dear,
All our hearts with His sweetness winning.
O how charming, O how dear,
Christ the Lord in His cradle here!

[Repeat Chorus]

Lord and King we kneel before,
While the bells in the sky are ringing.
Lord and King we kneel before,
Be our Ruler for evermore.

[Repeat Chorus Twice]
