 Song 111

He Will Call

He Will Call

(Job 14:13-15)

1. Life, like a mist, appears for just a day,

Then disappears tomorrow.

All that we are can quickly fade away,

Replaced with tears and sorrow.

If a man should die, can he live again?

Hear the promise God has made:

(CHORUS)

He will call; The dead will answer.

They shall live at his command.

For he will have a longing

For the work of his own hand.

So have faith, and do not wonder,

For our God can make us stand.

And we shall live forever,

As the work of his own hand.

2. Friends of our God, though they may pass away,

Will never be forsaken.

All those asleep who in God’s mem’ry stay,

From death he will awaken.

Then we’ll come to see all that life can be:

Paradise eternally.

(CHORUS)

He will call; The dead will answer.

They shall live at his command.

For he will have a longing

For the work of his own hand.

So have faith, and do not wonder,

For our God can make us stand.

And we shall live forever,

As the work of his own hand.
