This song was written by Dustin Sweatman and Scotty Inman, and was recorded by the Kingsmen… included on their album, Missing People.
Dustin Sweatman has a rich family history in music. Growing up in a musical family, he was always surrounded by great singers, musicians and songwriters. The Sweatman Family became a touring southern gospel family; after they came off the road, Dustin spent a short time with Pure Harmony, and a trio with his dad, Gerald, and close friend Stanley Pierce called EasternBound.
Dustin began a professional career with the Grammy nominated Dixie Melody Boys, where he earned his first award nomination as Favorite Newcomer. Later he joined the Mark Trammell Quartet, where he saw nominations for Favorite Young Artist and Lead Singer. Along with vocal and piano, Dustin is a multi-talented musician playing a number of instruments and has also seen success with songwriting and producing.
Scotty Inman, currently singing with Triumphant Quartet, started with Poet Voices in 2001. He received Singing News Fan Awards in 2007 for Favorite Young Artist and Horizon Individual. Scotty has written a number of songs for Triumphant Quartet and other groups.
For more than a half a century, no group has secured such a far reaching legacy like that of The Kingsmen Quartet. Since 1956, this group has risen from humble beginnings in the mountains of western North Carolina to one of the most beloved and innovative groups in Christian music. Countless renowned artists have been a part of this great lineage; such as Eldridge Fox, “Big” Jim Hamill, Ray Dean Reese, Squire Parsons, Johnny Parrack, Anthony Burger, Ernie Phillips, Gary Sheppard, and a host of others. The momentum has not stopped as this group continues to help define the Southern Gospel genre for a whole new generation of music lovers, perhaps more so than any other group.
The 2009 roster of the Kingsmen consisted of Harold Reed – tenor, Phillip Hughes – lead, Bryan Hutson – baritone, Ray Dean Reese – bass, Nick Succi – piano, and Brandon Reese – sound.
This song speaks of the 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ. On that day, no matter what else has happened or is happening, it will all be said and done!

I remember the time when I knelt at the altar; saving grace came flooding my soul.
I knew then that the Lord was with me, claiming my life and taking control.
Every day I’m looking for Heaven, for the last setting of the sun.
My soul is prepared, and I’m ready to go when it’s all said and done.
When it’s all said and done, I’ll be leaving this world a-shouting.
When it’s all said and done, I’ll rise from the ground.
There will be no more doubting!
He promised He would come again someday; then and there I’ll be on my way.
My race will be run; not a song will be sung when it’s all said and done.
Signs of the times are pointing daily for God’s children to be called home.
Make your preparation! Get your house in order! Eternal victory you will have won!
Homecoming Day; we all will gather just beyond Jordan’s misty foam,
So know for sure you will be called out when it’s all said and done. (CHORUS 2x)
