This is another Trumpet solo with many options.

This could be performed as-

• Trumpet Solo with Organ
• Trumpet Duet with Organ
• Trumpet Trio with Organ
• All of the above with choir and/or congregation

I have included five verses and most hymnals include only four. When the singers run out of lyrics, the arrangement modulates up a step for a very uplifting finish to the hymn. Also included are short interludes between verses to give the trumpet players a chance to rest. This is written in the most commonly used key so most organists will have little problem sight-reading it. The ending is great and will be remember for a long time. If you are contemplating this hymn for Easter, you need to pick it up now for your listeners will appreciate it.
