When the Roll is Called Up Yonder
Words and Music by James M. Black

Revelation 20:12
"And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened:
and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged
out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works."

          When the trumpet of the Lord shall sound, and time shall be no more,
          And the morning breaks, eternal, bright and fair;
          When the saved of earth shall gather over on the other shore,
          And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.

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

          On that bright and cloudless morning when the dead in Christ shall rise,
          And the glory of His resurrection share;
          When His chosen ones shall gather to their home beyond the skies,
          And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.

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

          Let us labor for the Master from the dawn till setting sun,
          Let us talk of all His wondrous love and care;
          Then when all of life is over, and our work on earth is done,
          And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.

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