Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

When the roll is called in glory

When the roll is called in glory

Tune: [When the roll is called in glory]
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1. When the roll is called in glory,
And earth's host shall muster there,
I will take my place among them,
And their joys and triumphs share.

Angels call the roll in glory,
Muster day for saints proclaim;
Call the roll and at the summons
I will answer to my name.

2. Tho' my dust lie in the valley,
Or beneath the ocean deep,
Call the roll, and I shall waken
From my dark and dreamless sleep. [Chorus]

3. He who keeps the keys of hades
Speaks, and lo! the vaulted door
Swings ajar the chains are riven,
And his ransomed die no more. [Chorus]

4. Born to life of endless beauty,
Satisfied my weary soul,
I shall join the glad hosannas
When the angels call the roll. [Chorus]
