Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 We know there's a bright and a glorious home,
Away in the heavens high,
Where all the redeem'd shall with Jesus dwell,
Will you be there, and I?

Will you be there and I?
Will you be there and I?
Where all the redeem'd shall with Jesus dwell,
Will you be there and I?

2 In robes of white o'er the streets of gold,
Beneath a cloudless sky,
They'll walk in the light of their Father's love,
Will you be there, and I?

Will you be there and I?
Will you be there and I?
They'll walk in the light of their Father's love,
Will you be there and I?

3 If we find the loving Saviour now,
And follow Him faithfully,
When He gathers His children in that bright home,
Will you be there, and I?

Will you be there and I?
When He gathers His children in that bright home,
Will you be there and I?

4 If we are shelter'd by the Cross,
And through the blood brought nigh;
Our utmost gain we'll count but loss,
Since you'll be there, and I.

Since you'll be there, and I,
Since you'll be there, and I;
Our utmost gain we'll count but loss,
Since you'll be there, and I.
