1 Will you be one in that beautiful land?
Will you be one, will you be one?
Around the white throne of the Saviour to stand?
Will you, O will you be One?
Will you be there in the glorified throng?
Will you be there, will you be there?
To sing the sweet strain of that blessed new song,
Will you, O will you be there?

Will you be one in that beautiful land?
Will you be one, will you be one?
Ever rejoicing at Jesus’ right hand,
Will you be one?

2 Will you be one whom the Saviour will claim?
Will you be one, will you be one?
An heir of salvation thro’ faith in His name?
Will you, O will you be One?
Will you with Jesus forever abide,
Safely at home, safely at home?
Where ev’ry heart longing shall be satisfied,
Safely forever at home. [Refrain]

3 There will be joy in that city so fair,
Wonderful joy, wonderful joy;
There’ll never be parting nor sorrowing there,
All will be wonderful joy.
There will be glory for sinners redeemed,
Glory for you, glory for me,
Beyond all that mortals have heard or have dream’d,
Glory for you and for me. [Refrain]
