Representative Text

1 I will look for you up yonder,
When my days down here are o’er;
When the roll is called in glory,
Will you meet me on that shore?

Refrain:
At the roll call I will look for you,
At the roll call up above the blue,
When the roll is called in glory,
Will you be there?

2 I will look for you up yonder,
On that wonderful great day,
When we wake at call of Jesus,
And the earth shall pass away. [Refrain]

3 I will look for you up yonder,
In that city of the King,
Thro’ eternity’s glad ages,
There the praise of Him to sing. [Refrain]

4 I will look for you up yonder,
Will you meet me there that day?
Will we meet with Christ the Savior,
Forevermore there to stay? [Refrain]

William C. Poole was born and raised on a farm in Maryland. His parents belonged to the Methodist church. He graduated from Washington College and became a Methodist minister in Wilmington, Delaware area. He was pastor of McCabe Memorial, Richardson Park and other churches. In 1913 he was superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League of Delaware. He wrote about five hundred hymns. The writing was done as recreation and a diversion from his pastoral work. His goal in writing as well as in being a minister was to help people.
