'When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder' From Choir Of Gaither Voices - Christian Music Videos

An incredible choir of all our favorite Gaither voices performs the classic hymn ‘When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder.’ This song was written in 1893 with the words and music by James Milton Black. “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.” He was inspired to write the hymn after attending Sunday school one morning and noticing that a child was absent. James then began to think about the Book Of Life and what it would be life for someone to be absent in Heaven. He wrote ‘When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder’ shortly after this moment. “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.” Today, some of our favorite classic Christian artists such as Allison Durham Speer, Ann Downing, Ernie Haase, George Younce, Mike Allen, Joy Gardner, Kim Hopper and Dean Hoppe are singing this hymn. What a beautiful reminder that when accept Christ into our hearts, we are on the way to an eternal life in Heaven. John 14:2-4 “2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”
