The Trumpet Shall Sound...

The trumpet shall sound

and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, 

and we shall be changed. 

For this corruptible must put on incorruption, 

and this mortal must put on immortality.

(1 Corinthians XV, 52-53)

Revelation 5:12-14

In a loud voice they were saying: 

“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,  

to receive power and wealth 

and wisdom and strength and honor 

and glory and praise!”  

Then I heard every creature in heaven 

and on earth  and under the earth and on the sea, 

and all that is in them, 


To him who sits on the throne 

and to the Lamb be praise and 

honor and glory and power,

for ever and ever!” 

The four living creatures said, 


and the elders fell down and worshiped.

Worthy is the Lamb and AMEN (Messiah)

From George Frideric Handel's 
'The Messiah' the chorus 

Despite its length the entire Messiah 
was written by Handel in just 24 days straight,
