1 Sometime we’ll stand before the judgment bar,
The quick, the risen dead;
The Lord will then make known the record there;
Our names will all be read.

Chorus:
I’ll be present when the roll is called,
Pure and spotless thro’ the crimson flood;
I will answer when they call my name;
Saved thro’ Jesus’ blood.

2 I’ll then receive a bright and starry crown,
As only God can give;
And when I’ve been with Him ten thousand years,
I’ll have no less to live. [Chorus]

3 Then we shall meet to never part again,
Our toil will then be o’er;
We’ll lay our burdens down at Jesus’ feet,
And rest forevermore. [Chorus]
