Representative Text

1 Someone shall knock at the beautiful gate,
Will it be you?
Will it be you?
Only to find that he’s knocking too late,
O tell me, will it be you?

Refrain:
Someone rejected shall turn from the gate,
O the sad thought of thus being too late!
You must have Jesus to carry you thro’,
Lest, brother, it may be you.

2 Someone shall hear the glad, triumphant song,
Will it be you?
Will it be you?
Longing to join in the praise with that throng,
O tell me, will it be you? [Refrain]

3 Someone shall weep when the Lord says, “depart,”
Will it be you?
Will it be you?
Turn from his presence with sorrowful heart,
O tell me, will it be you? [Refrain]

4 Someone shall linger with tears in their eyes,
Will it be you?
Will it be you?
When the redeemed ones ascend to the skies,
O tell me, will it be you? [Refrain]
