The Last Song

Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill had planned his funeral, which took place in Saint Paul’s Cathedral. His instructions called for a bugler to be positioned high in the dome of Saint Paul’s. After the benediction, this bugler played “Taps”, the universal signal that says the day is over.

But then came a dramatic turn. As Churchill instructed, after “Taps” was finished, another bugler, placed on the other side of the great dome, played the notes of “Reveille”—“It’s time to get up. It’s time to get up. It’s time to get up in the morning.”

That was Churchill’s testimony that at the end of history, the last note will not be “Taps”; it will be “Reveille.”

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?’”—John 11:25-26.
