BLOW THE TRUMPET, ZION!
SA/2-Part Mixed or Equal Voices
With text adapted from the scripture Joel 2:1-2, this anthem describes the day of the Lord which is drawing near:
Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy hill. Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming.
It is close at hand— A day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness. Like dawn spreading across the mountains a large and mighty army comes, Such as never was in ancient times nor ever will be in ages to come.
Great for any age school or church choir from middle school age through adult choir

Perfect for Lent
Upbeat, syncopated rhythms
Easy, repetitive lyrics
Chords included for additional instruments
