Around the great white throne some day
Dear friends shall gathered be;
Around the great white throne of God,
Will I be there to see?

Refrain

Will I be there, will I be there,
When friends shall gathered be
Around the great white throne above?
Will I be there to see?

Around the great white throne, sweet thought!
I may be kneeling there,
For Christ has said there is a way,
It may be learned by prayer.

Refrain

Teach me the way, O Savior dear,
I am so weak; my prayer
Is that I may not go astray;
I want to meet you there.
