Advent Hymnals

005. SHALL YOU? SHALL I?

Christ in Song,

1.
Some one will enter the pearly gate
By and by, by and by,
Taste of the glories that there await,
Shall you?  shall I?  Shall you?  shall I?
Some one will travel the streets of gold,
Beautiful visions will there behold,
Feast on the pleasures so long foretold:
Shall you?  shall I?  Shall you?  shall I?

2.
Some one will gladly his cross lay down
By and by, by and by,
Faithful, approved, shall receive a crown,
Shall you?  shall I?  Shall you?  shall I?
Some one the glorious King will see,
Ever from sorrow of earth be free,
Happy with Him thro' eternity:
Shall you?  shall I?  Shall you?  shall I?

3.
Some one will knock when the door is shut
By and by, by and by,
Hear a voice saying, "I know you not,"
Shall you?  shall I?  Shall you?  shall I?
Some one will call and shall not be heard,
Vainly will strive when the door is barred,
Someone will fail of the saints reward:
Shall you?  shall I?  Shall you?  shall I?

4.
Some one will sing the triumphant song
By and by, by and by,
Join in the praise with the blood-bought throng
Shall you?  shall I?  Shall you?  shall I?
Some one will greet on the golden shore,
Loved ones of earth, pain and parting o'er,
Safe in the glory for evermore:
Shall you?  shall I?  Shall you?  shall I?
