John Palmer (1960-2007) was a founding member of Toronto-based 80s band Fourth Watch (later Red Rain of Sanctuary Toronto) as well as a regular guest artist at the Evergreen/Yonge Street Mission.
"Will You Be There?" is part of a small collection covering some of John's finest work in tribute to the man, his testimony, and his Lord.


Will you be there
When we meet up in the air
Or will you be left behind
When Jesus returns
Will you be at His feast
Or will you stay
And worship the beast
Will you be there
Or will you burn?

I have friends that I love so well
They're walking time's tightrope without a care
Yet when they fall 'twill be eternal hell
O friend, will you be there?

There were two thieves
One cried in agony
"Save us and then
Bring Yourself down from there."
Then cried the other thief
"Lord, remember me."
Jesus said to him
"You will be there."

For two thousand years he's been in paradise
The passage of time he's unaware
He's just beginning eternity with Christ
O friend, will you be there?

Let me ask you friend
Are you really born again
Have you made a choice
Have you made a turn
Are you living for Him
Or is the fire growing dim
Will you hear His voice
When He returns?
