First-Place Song

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 His tender smile

Or heard Him call me friend.

I wasn’t there to see the pain

He suffered for all men.

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!

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.

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!
