1. Herald, sound the note of judgment
Warning us of right and wrong,
Turning us from sin and sadness
Till once more we sing the song.

Sound the trumpet!
Tell the message!
Christ, the Savior King, has come!

2. Herald, sound the note of gladness;
Tell the news that Christ is here;
Make a pathway through the desert
For the the one who brings God near. Refrain

3. Herald, sound the note of pardon
Those repenting are forgiven;
God receives his wayward child
And to them new life is given. Refrain

4. Herald, sound the note of triumph;
Christ ahs come to share our life,
Bringing God's own love and power,
Granting victory in our strife. Refrain
