Maybe I Will Be There
1. I wasn’t at the manger Nor at the cruel cross
I didn’t lay Him in the tomb, Feel numb with grief and loss
2. I wasn’t there when He arose To worship at His feet.
I wasn’t in a Nephite land As He taught other sheep.
Chorus: But maybe I will be there When Jesus comes again.
Maybe I will hear His voice and see the angels then.
Surely I will praise His name When ev’ry knee shall bend,
Maybe I will be there when Jesus comes again.
3. I didn’t see the miracles Or walk in Galilee
I didn’t see Him raise the dead, Take children on His knee
4.I never knew the tender smile Or heard Him call me friend.
I wasn’t there to see the pain He suffered for all men.
5.My time is in the latter days When truth has been restored.
And though I’ve never seen His face, I know my Savior’s word.
6. The scriptures say I need not fear If I will but prepare.
Then with the just I’ll be caught up And meet my Savior There
Chorus: And maybe I will be there when Jesus comes again
And maybe I will hear His voice And see the angels then.
Surely I will praise His name When ev’ry knee shall bend
Maybe I will be there When Jesus comes again.
I pray that I will be there when Jesus comes again.
