I pieced this together from several samples:


What would you do with Gabriel's trumpet
If God should offer it today?
Would you gratefully receive it
And blot out this world so gay?

If God should offer you the trumpet
To take this world whene'er you please,
Would you forget your loving neighbors?
Would you blow it selfishly?

Oh, how sad if you should blow it
For the sinners who are here...
