No. 75. Gabriel's Trumpet's Going to Blow
(As sung by Miss Jennie Jackson)

1
Gabriel's trumpet's going to blow,
By and by, by and by,
Yes, Gabriel's trumpet's going to blow,
At the end of time.
2
Oh, get you all ready for to go
By and by, by and by
Oh, get you all ready for to go
At the end of time.
3
Then my Lord will say to Gabriel,
By and by, by and by,
Go, get you down your silver trumpet,
At the end of time.
4
The first sounding of the trumpet for the righteous
By and by, by and by,
First sounding of the trumpet for the righteous,
At the end of time.
5
Go, wake the sleeping nations,
By and by, by and by,
Go, wake the sleeping nations,
At the end of time.
6
Then, poor sinner, what will you do ?
By and by, by and by,
You'll run for the mountains to hide you,
At the end of time.
