When King Jesus Calls His Children Home

Intro: G D G C G D G 
G
When they plant me like a seed in the ground
                                 G7
Silent sleepin' in some old gray vine
C                             G
I'll be just like a rose, just waitin' for the spring
                                  D                    G
'Cause I'm a gonna rise up, rise up and shout and sing
G
'Cause ain't no grave gonna hold my body down
                               G7
When I hear, hear that trumpet sound
C                                  G
I know I've been a dyin', since the day that I was born
                       D                  G
But now I live for that resurrection boy


**Chorus**
G
When king Jesus calls his children home
                                   G7 
When king Jesus calls his children home
            C
I'm a gonna wear my snow white gown 
               G
I'm a gonna put on a starlite crown
                     D                  G
When king Jesus calls his children home
******


G
Like a bird in a cage that's been set free
                            G7
My soul is seen through out eternity
C                              G 
I shed this mourning shell (Oh let ol' satan stay in hell)
                   D                   G
I'll see glory that no mutant can tell


**Repeat Chorus**


You know not the hour
You know not the day
Soul behold by children hide and watch and pray
G                         D              G
When king Jesus calls his children home  


***Repeat chorus***


*repeat chorus, but with no guitar*
