When those who love the Lord
Are gathered 'round His throne,
Will you be there beside me,
Or will I be there alone?
Will we rejoice together,
Or will I one day find
That you've not made the journey --
That you've been left behind?
I ask one thing above all else
Of those whom I hold dear:
When He gathers His saints in Heaven,
Be there....be there....please be there!

For it is by grace you have been saved,
through faith--and this not from yourselves,
it is the gift of God-- not by works, so that
no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
