    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!
