“And he divided the 300 men into three companies and put trumpets into the hands of all of them and empty jars, with torches inside the jars. And he said to them, “Look at me, and do likewise. When I come to the outskirts of the camp, do as I do. When I blow the trumpet, I and all who are with me, then blow the trumpets also on every side of all the camp and shout, ‘For the Lord and for Gideon.'” Judges 7:16-18 ESV

From many only a few are chosen 

So the heirs of the Great I Am

Faithful trumpeters smash their jars

The Light reveals the battle is ours 

“A sword for the Lord and for Gideon”

Chaos reigned in the camp of Midian

The enemy vanquished, the army ran

So the darkness before the Son of Man

God uses broken jars of clay

To share the truth and light the way

His only Son sacrificed on a tree

Arose from the grave in victory 

Sin and death defeated forevermore

Our blessed hope has won the war

In Jesus grace and peace are ever found

As we await the last trumpet sound!
