Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Will you be there

By faith in a glorified Christ on the throne

Tune: HOME (Bishop)
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 By faith in a glorified Christ on the throne,
We give up the joys of the world to its own;
As strangers and pilgrims we plainly declare,
Our home is up yonder;
But will you be there?

Home, home, sweet, sweet home;
There’s no friend like Jesus,
There’s no place like home.

2 We’re watching for Jesus, Who entered within
The holiest of all, when He put away sin;
A place in the glory He’s gone to prepare,
Where we shall be with Him;
But will you be there? [Refrain]

3 We’re waiting for Jesus; His promise is plain,
His Word’s sure and steadfast, He’s coming again;
A numberless people will meet in the air
The Lord who redeemed them;
But will you be there? [Refrain]

4 In the home of our Father the banquet is spread,
There the naked are clothed and the hungry are fed;
The house is fast filling—there’s yet room to spare;
Not a seat will be vacant;
But will you be there? [Refrain]
