(drowned January 24, 1539 in Rotterdam)
Anna Jansz's “Trumpet Song”
To the Tune: “To the East Lands will I travel”
1 I hear the Trumpet sounding,
From far off I hear her blast!
In Jerusalem, Edom, in Bashan,
The heralds cry high and low,
To me their sound brings this to mind:
“Prepare yourselves for the wedding feast,
All you who love the King!
The Gate is open, enter in!
Adorn yourselves, don your Wedding finery!”____________________
