STRIKE UP THE BAND

Dianne Wilkinson

Strike up the band, that angel band, assembled now and ready
To proclaim heaven's praises to the King
That music's planned, prepared for those who come by way of Calvary
It's a song that the angels cannot sing
The redeemed of all the ages will be there to sing along
On a brand new song never heard by mortal man
Oh, I'm longing for the day when we hear King Jesus say
"Welcome to the Promised Land, strike up the band"

We are living near the Book of Revelation
From the things we see, we know the time is near
Soon the trumpet blast will start the celebration 
We will hear the shout from heaven, loud and clear

Strike up the band, that angel band, assembled now and ready
To proclaim heaven's praises to the King
That music's planned, prepared for those who come by way of Calvary
It's a song that the angels cannot sing
The redeemed of all the ages will be there to sing along
On a brand new song never heard by mortal man
Oh, I'm longing for the day when we hear King Jesus say
"Welcome to the Promised Land, strike up the band"

I can just imagine David as he's playing
Some sweet song about the Risen Holy One
We will make the heavens ring with happy praises 
To God the Father, God the Spirit, God the Son God the Son

Strike up the band, that angel band, assembled now and ready
To proclaim heaven's praises to the King
That music's planned, prepared for those who come by way of Calvary
It's a song that the angels cannot sing
The redeemed of all the ages will be there to sing along
On a brand new song never heard by mortal man
Oh, I'm longing for the day when we hear King Jesus say
"Welcome to the Promised Land, strike up the band"
