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.

We'll Be There

Representative Text

1 I love to think of my heav'nly home,
Where all shall glory share,
Where songs of rapture shall ever rise:
Oh, tell me, will you all be there?

Chorus:
We'll be there, We'll be there,
At the sounding of the trumpet, we'll be there,
We'll be there, We'll be there,
At the sounding of the trumpet, we'll be there.

2 I love to think of my heav'nly home,
So free from toil and care;
Where crowns of vict'ry shall never fade:
Oh, tell me, will you all be there? [Chorus]

3 I love to think of my heav'nly home,
Where saints shall white robes wear,
And sing sweet anthems for evermore:
Oh, tell me, will you all be there? [Chorus]

4 I love to think of my heav'nly home,
So lovely and so rare;
A few more years and I'll reach the goal:
Oh, tell me, will you all be there? [Chorus]
