Maybe I Will Be There


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!
