Lyrics

I'll be rested when the roll is called,
I'll be rested when the roll is called,
I'll be rested in the kingdom of heaven.
I'll be rested when the roll is called.

No more shouting when the roll is called,
No more shouting when the roll is called,
I'll be rested in the kingdom of heaven.
I'll be rested when the roll is called.

No more sorrows when the roll is called,
No more sorrows when the roll is called,
I'll be rested in the kingdom of heaven.
I'll be rested when the roll is called.

Meet my mother when the roll is called,
Meet my mother when the roll is called,
Meet my mother in the kingdom of heaven.
I'll be rested when the roll is called.

I'll be rested when the roll is called.
I'll be rested when the roll is called.
I'll be rested in the kingdom of heaven.
I'll be rested when the roll is called.

Meet my ? when the roll is called.
Meet my ? when the roll is called.
Meet my ? in the kingdom of heaven.
Meet my ? when the roll is called.
