Representative Text

1 There’s joy for the soul when the Master has come,
Will it be mine?
Will it be mine?
There’s joy in reunion, when all are at home,
Will it, O Lord, be mine?
Joy in the welcome to yonder bright shore,
Joy in the meetings where partings are o’er;
Joy in the greeting of friends gone before,
Will it, O Lord, be mine?
Will it be mine?
Will it be mine?
Will it, O Lord, be mine?

2 There’s rest for the soul when its race has been run,
Will it be mine?
Will it be mine?
There’s rest for the soul when with sin it has done,
Will it, O Lord, be mine?
Rest for the weary, with burdens oppressed,
Rest for the toiler, with patience possessed,
Rest in the Lord, O the sweetest and best
Will it, O Lord, be mine?
Will it be mine?
Will it be mine?
Will it, O Lord, be mine?
