Lyrics

We know there’s a bright and a glorious home,
Away in the heavens high,
Where all the redeemed shall with Jesus dwell;
Will you be there, and I?
Will you be there, and I?

In robes of white, over streets of gold,
Beneath a cloudless sky,
They walk in the light of their Father’s love;
Will you be there, and I?
Will you be there, and I?

From every kingdom of earth they come,
To join the triumphal cry
Of Worthy the Lamb that once was slain!
Will you be there, and I?
Will you be there, and I?

If we take the loving Savior now,
And follow Him faithfully,
When He gathers His children in that bright home,
Then you’ll be there, and I!
Then you’ll be there, and I!
