You'll Be There

 

Hope is an anchor
And love is a ship
Time is the ocean
And life is a trip
You don't know where you're goin'
'Til you know where you're at
And if you can't read the stars
Well, you'd better have a map
A compass and a conscience
So you don't get lost at sea
Lonesome old lonely island
Where no one wants to be

From the beginning of creation
I think our maker had a plan
For us to leave these shores
And sail beyond the sand
And let the good light guide us
To the waves and the wind
To the beaches in a world
Where we've have never been
And we'll climb upon the mountain y'all
We'll let our voices ring
And those who've never tried it
They'll be the first to sing

Oh, my, my
I'll see you on the other side
If I make it
And it might be a long hard ride
But I'm gonna take it
Sometime it seems that I don't have a prayer
Let the weather take me anywhere
But I know that I want to go
The streets are gold 'cause you'll be there
Oh, my, my

You don't bring nothin' with you here
And you can't take nothin' back
I ain't never seen a hearse with a luggage rack
So I've torn my knees a-prayin'
Scared my back from fallin' down
Spent so much time flyin' high
'Til I'm face first in the ground
So if you're up there watchin' me
Would you talk to God and say
Tell him I might need a hand
To see you both someday

Oh, my, my
So, I'll see you on the other side
If I make it
And it may be a long hard ride
But I want to take it
Sometime it seems that I don't have a prayer
Let the weather take me anywhere
But I know that I want to go
Where the streets are gold
'Cause you'll be there (you'll be there)
Oh, my, my
'Cause you'll be there (you'll be there)
Oh, my, my

 

Carl's Quote of the Day is a weekday email of quotes that are inspiring, managerial, leadership-related, or that Carl just likes.  Each week has a theme, albeit sometimes tenuous.  Weeks are separated by +++.  Start at the bottom and read up to read in chronological, theme order.  For other quotes use the "Q" links at the top.

Want to know more about how and why Carl created and continues Carl's Quote of the Day?  I didn't think so, since no one has asked.  So do not read the FUNQ page (that's Frequently UNasked Questions).

As an additional service to get you quickly to the books that some of these quotes are from, Carl's Quote of the Day is an associate of Amazon.com.  Please use the link above when you buy from Amazon since that helps support Carl's Quote of the Day.  (Well, actually, that supports Carl's expensive reading habit.  Same thing, really.)

We are also affiliated with Christian Book Distributors.  If you are looking for a Christian book, please start here.

Since I'm a geeky guy, many ask me about Bible software.  I have 5 free CDs from www.FreeBibleSoftware.com.   (Shipping is $7.95)

Finding a good, inexpensive web host is not easy. I use GoDaddy.
