From The Hymnal ~ When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder

Sunday, September 4, 2011

This is one of those old-timey hymns that I just love. Since it is Labor Day weekend, I couldn't help but think on the line that says *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.* HAPPY LABOR DAY!!

When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

Reminder: Please go to the bottom of the page and switch off the blog music -- listen to Miss Twila sing and be blessed!!

  1. I love this hymn! I can see myself singing it in my Mother In Laws country church! So sweet! b

  1. One of my favorites. It takes me back to being young and carefree and lookin' around at all the ladies hats in our old white church down in the "river bottoms." Do you know: It's bound to be the lord? It's one of my absolute faves. Love to sing it to the babies when I'm rockin' them.

    Have a blessed day,
