We’ll Be with Him
TEXT: Mark Ryman (© 2005) from John 14:1-14
TUNE: “
What a Savior,” by Philip P. Bliss (1875).

Can you see across the way?
There shines bright a better day.
This is not naiveté:
Where he goes, Friends, we’ll be with him!

He goes to prepare a place
For our brighter, fairer days.
We’ll transcend both time and space.
Where he goes, Friends, we’ll be with him!

Jesus is the Way, my Friend.
He’s the Truth to comprehend
He’s the Life that has no end.
Where he goes, Friends, we’ll be with him!

Only through him do we soar
For he is the Living Door.
Trust him now, I must implore.
Where he goes, Friends, we’ll be with him!

He will come again one day
To take all his Friends away
Farther than the Milky Way.
When he comes, Friends, we’ll be with him!
