Representative Text

1 Will my name be found on the roll of the faithful,
In that great assembly by and by,
When a true account of our service is rendered,
When we gather there beyond the sky?

Refrain:
Will my name be found on the roll of the faithful,
By and by, by and by?
Will the words “well done,” unto me be spoken,
By and by, by and by?

2 Am I suing talents to me now entrusted,
Do I “Occupy until He come?”
Or will I at last filled with shame and with sorrow,
See but wasted time when life is done? [Refrain]

3 Do my hands reach out to the weak and the needy,
Cheering those who walk in pathway’s dim?
Will the Master till me with smiles of approval,
What I’ve done for those I did for Him? [Refrain]

4 Am I winning souls from the power of darkness,
To the light and home of saints above?
‘Mong the gems adorning the crowns of the righteous,
Will there be in mine a star of love? [Refrain]
