Representative Text

1 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.

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.

2 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]

3 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]


1 Cuando la trompeta suene en aquel día final,
y el alba eterna rompa en claridad; cuando las naciones salvas
a su patria lleguen ya, y allá se pase lista, yo he de estar.

Cuando allá se pase lista,
cuando allá se pase lista,
cuando allá se pase lista,
a mi nombre yo feliz responderé.

2 En aquel dia sin nieblas en que muerte ya no habrá,
y su gloria el Salvador impartirá; cuando los llamados entren
a su celestial hogar, y allá se pase lista, yo he de estar. [Estribillo]

3 Pues sirvamos al Maestro desde el alba al vislumbrar;
siempre hablemos de su amor y fiel bondad; cuando todo aqui fenezca
y nuestra obra cese ya, y allá se pase lista, yo he de estar. [Estribillo]
