When the Roll is Called up Yonder

 

[Verse 1]

         A                                   D                A

When the trumpet of the Lord shall sound and time shall be no more,

                                            E

And the morning breaks, eternal, bright and fair;

         A                                D            A

When the saved of earth shall gather over on the other shore,

                          E               A

And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.

 

 

[Chorus]

         A

When the roll is called up yonder,

         E

When the roll is called up yonder,

         A                 D

When the roll is called up yonder,

         A                 E               A

When the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.

 

 

[Verse 2]

        A                                     D                    A

On that bright and cloudless morning when the dead in Christ shall rise,

                                  E

And the glory of his resurrection share;

         A                                 D               A

When his chosen ones shall gather to their home beyond the skies,

                          E               A

And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.

 

 

[Verse 3]

       A                              D                 A

Let us labour for the Master from the dawn till setting sun,

                                         E

Let us talk of all his wondrous love and care;

          A                            D                A

Then when all of life is over, and our work on earth is done,

                          E               A

And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.
