Will The Circle Be Unbroken ” is a popular Christian hymn written in 1907 by Ada R. Habershon with music by Charles H. Gabriel. The song is often recorded unattributed and, because of its age, has lapsed into the public domain. Most of the chorus appears in the later songs “Can the Circle Be Unbroken” and “Daddy Sang Bass”. The song is generally played to be uplifting to the congregation, and is a frequent standard in gospel revivals.

Lyrics

Will The Circle Be Unbroken

There are loved ones in the glory
Whose dear forms you often miss,
When you close your earthly story
Will you join them in their bliss?

Refrain:

Will the circle be unbroken
by and by, yes, by and by?
In a better home awaiting
in the sky, in the sky?

In the joyous days of childhood,
Oft they told of wondrous love,
Pointed to the dying Savior,
Now they dwell with Him above.

[Refrain]

You remember songs of heaven
Which you sang with childish voice,
Do you love the hymns they taught you,
Or are songs of earth your choice?

[Refrain]

You can picture happy gath’rings
Round the fireside long ago,
And you think of tearful partings,
When they left you here below.

[Refrain]

One by one their seats were empty,
One by one they went away,
Now the family is parted,
Will it be complete one day?

[Refrain]
