1 Oft I’ve heard my mother tell
Of a home she loved so well,
And her last words softly fell,
I’ll be there!
Where the angels sweetly sing,
And their harps with music ring,
In the palace of the King,
I’ll be there.

Refrain:
I’ll be there, yes I’ll be there,
I’ll be there, yes I’ll be there,
Where the angels sweetly sing,
And their harps with music ring,
In the palace of the King,
I’ll be there.

2 Just across the crystal sea,
Mother’s sweetly calling me,
And my answer soon shall be,
I’ll be there;
What a meeting that will be,
When my mother’s face I see,
For ’tis ’thro eternity,
I’ll be there. [Refrain]

3 Over on the peaceful shore,
There my Savior I’ll adore,
With His hand to guide me o’er,
I’ll be there!
With the angels’ happy band,
We will walk the golden strand,
In that fair and happy land,
I’ll be there. [Refrain]

4 Angels watch the pearly gate,
There’s a message to relate,
I’ve not long on earth to wait,
I’ll be there;
Up the glittering streets I’ll wend,
There to meet departed friend,
In a world that ne’er shall end,
I’ll be there. [Refrain]
