The Seventh Trumpet, A Roundel

A roundel based on Revelation 11:15-19

At the trumpet’s call, all creatures cry,
And before their King the people fall
Living to praise nevermore to die
At the trumpet’s call.
With thanks and praise to the Lord of All:
The Almighty reigns from earth to sky–
Lifts up the meek, brings low the tall.
Before his wrath the destroyers fly.
Removing at last the veiled wall,
We behold the Holy with our eye.
At the trumpet’s call.
