Representative Text

1 Beyond this world of gilded snares,
Beyond this life of toil and cares,
There is a region fair.
It knows no change and no decay,
No night, for all is endless day.

Refrain:
Oh, say, will you be there?
Oh, say, will you be there?
Oh, say, oh, say,
Oh, say, will you be there?

2 Its glorious gates are closed to sin;
Naught that defiles can enter in,
To mar its beauty rare.
Upon that bright eternal shore,
Earth’s gilded snares are seen no more. [Refrain]

3 Will you be there? Oh yes, you must,
For in our Savior you can trust,
Who did that place prepare.
Still doth His voice sound sweetly,
"Come, I am the way, I’ll lead you home." [Refrain]
