What is that noise, that noise
Sounds really beautiful
Pum, Pum, Bang, Bang.
It sounds like it is coming
From this room.

No. It is coming
From over there.
But when I look up
In the sky,
That sound sounds again –
Pum, Pum, Bang, Bang.
When I look up in the sky
It keeps on getting fainter.
But I don’t want it to go away.
Every time I hear that sound,
It seems like I’m getting
Closer to my dreams
Of being a musician.
When I look up in the sky
That sound again –
Pum, Pum, Bang, Bang
I see a shiny light and
The angel playing
The trumpet.

One Response to “The Sound of the Trumpet”

  1. Andre

    Blowing a trumpet has one purpose, which is to draw attention. The trumpet sound comes in many form of melody for many different reasons. In Matthew 6:2, it is to draw the attention to a wealthy donor. In the Book of Moses, blowing the trumpets is to announce a special gathering for God’s people. In the book of Joshua, the trumpet was sound for different ceremony. In the Books of the Major and Minor Prophets, the sound of the trumpet is the alarm of war. In the book of Psalm, it is to praise God. In the book of Revelation, John heard a voice like a trumpet, Rev 1:10, 4:1, and angels sound the trumpet at different interval of God judgement on the people of the earth. Inasmuch as Jesus uttered His last word “It is finished” in John 19:30, the last trumpet sound of 1 Corinthians 15:52 indicate that God’s special work to the Church is finished and this sound of the trumpet could be considered as a victory sound as described in verse 54 “Death is swallowed in victory”.
