Hoyt & Roberts, comps.  Hoyt’s New Cyclopedia of Practical Quotations.  1922.
The last loud trumpet’s wondrous sound,
Shall thro’ the rending tombs rebound,
And wake the nations under ground.
        Wentworth Dillon—On the Day of Judgment. St. 3.
The trumpet! the trumpet! the dead have all heard:
Lo, the depths of the stone-cover’d charnels are stirr’d:
From the sea, from the land, from the south and the north,
The vast generations of man are come forth.
        Milman—Hymns for Church Service. Second Sunday in Advent. St. 3.
Shall man alone, for whom all else revives,
No resurrection know? Shall man alone,
Imperial man! be sown in barren ground,
Less privileged than grain, on which he feeds?
        Young—Night Thoughts. Night VI. L. 704.
I see the Judge enthroned; the flaming guard:
The volume open’d!—open’d every heart!
        Young—Night Thoughts. Night IX. L. 262.
