During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

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.
