8812. I'll Be With You

1 I am happy now in Jesus,
He has washed me white as snow;
Now I’m resting on His promise—
Everywhere I’ll with you go.

"I’ll be with you, I’ll be with you,
Everywhere, where’er you go."
Hallelujah! I’m rejoicing,
For my Savior’s voice I know.

2 How my soul will leap for gladness,
When my Jesus I will see,
And I’ll reign with Him forever,
All throughout eternity! [Refrain]

3 When the pearly gates swing open,
And the angels’ faces see,
Then we’ll hear our Savior saying,
Welcome, child—I died for thee. [Refrain]
