Bobby was the type of man any girl or boy would have been happy to call Dad. Please know I appreciate all he did in support of my kids. You were a wonderful brother in law and my life is richer because of having you in it. The Angels have received a gift in you.

When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder

Lyrics and Music by James Milton Black (19 Aug 1856 - 21 Dec 1938), 1893


1. When the trumpet of the Lord shall sound and time shall be no more
And the morning breaks eternal, bright and fair
When the saved of earth shall gather over on the other shore
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there!

2. On that bright and cloudless morning when the dead in Christ shall rise
And the glory of His resurrection share
When His chosen ones shall gather to their home beyond the skies
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there!

3. Let us labor for the Master from the dawn till setting sun,
Let us talk of all His wondrous love and care;
Then when all of life is over, and our work on earth is done
And the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there!

Chorus:
When the roll, is called up yonder,
When the roll, is called up yonder,
When the roll, is called up yonder
When the roll is called up yonder I'll be there!
