I'll Be There

In honor of Memorial Day, here's a link to When the Roll is Called Up Yonder, from Net Hymnal (my favorite church hymn resource.)

It reminds me of something I read about a guy named Oscar, who helped start a little church up here in the northwoods about a hundred years ago. A friend, reflecting on those early church services remarked, "Oscar couldn't carry a tune very well -- but he sang, "When the Roll is Called up Yonder" with such fervor that everybody present knew he FULLY INTENDED to be there!
