Posted:  17 Nov 2005 03:02
Some of the lyrics are as such:

Meet me in Heaven, we'll sing songs together.  Meet me by the Savior's side......

Please help me find this song and it's author.  Thanks!

Michelle - The song you're looking for is called "Side By Side".  It goes back to the late '60's and early '70's.  I'll have to hunt for who wrote it, but that was when Ralph  Carmichael and Kurt Kaiser were cranking out the contemporary "Jesus Music", as it was called back then.  God bless you - hope this helps.  -  Lee

Thanks Lee, if you could please find out who wrote it, that would be awesome!  Much appreciation!!  Michele

Michele!  Michele!  I found it!

"Side by Side" was written by Jeff Wood (words and music) and arranged by Paul Johnson, copyright 1972 by Sonlife Music Company, which owns the rights.

Side by side we stand awaiting God's command
Worshiping the saving King

Living by His grace and moving on in faith
Jesus Himself will see us through

Meet me in heaven, we'll join hands together
Meet me by the Savior's side
I'll meet you in heaven, we'll sing songs together
Brothers and sisters, I'll be there

Soldiers all are we to go where Jesus leads
We'll fight in faith and we will overcome
Heaven is our goal, and saving every soul
Pray that we all will be there

Repeat chorus:

Finish: Praise the Lord, we all will be there

Like a junkyard dog, I don't give up till I've nailed it!  Keep "in His Word", feed on it every day, and stand on it without wavering.  The winds are starting to blow and you want to be anchored to the Rock.  See you in the Kingdom, Michele.  Have a very Merry Christmas! - Lee

Thanks again, Lee.  Don't let anyone or anything steal your crown!  See you in Heaven.....Michele

Hello I am looking for a hymn called I Will Be With You by an author called Gerard Markland and the tune and the words mean a lot to me as I played it on my instrument every year when I went to Lourdes for a holiday and because I don't go there anymore it will still bring back memories for me.

I can write out the Chorus for you and if you can contact me on Huntingdon 01480 831388 I will play the tune on my keyboard.

I can tell you this hymn is in many hymn books but not necessary sang, but anyway the Chorus goes like this.

I will be with you wherever you go.
Go out throughout the world.
I will be with you in all that you say.
Go now and spread my word.

Verse one
cCome follow me to the stormy waters.
Come reach out and I'll be there.

back to Chorus

If you can help me find my favourite hymn I will be so pleased an if you need any help with the music don't hesitate to give me a ring on my home number and the best time to do this is evenings only

Yours sincerely

Matthew Baker

The hymn to which you are refering is called "I will be with you" and is in the Celebrational Hymnal, published by McCrimmon Publishing Ltd.

The words are:

I will be with you whereever you go,
go now throughout the world,
I will be with you in all that you say,
go now and spread my word.

V1. Come walk with me on stormy waters,
Why fear?  Reach out and I'll be there.

V2. And you, my friend, will you now leave me,
or do you know me as your Lord?

V3. Your life will be transformed with power
by living truly in my name.

V4. And if you say, 'Yes Lord, I love you,'
then feed my lambs and feed my sheep.

As you may have realised, the verses are based on words that Jesus said to Saint Peter.

I first remember hearing it at Hopwood Hall, which used to be a teacher training college run by the Salesians, in the 1970's.  Gerard Markland is a very nice man and a talented singer and guitarist, but as far as I am aware has published very little recently.

We sang this hymn in our church this morning, 22nd January 2006.

Gerard Markland is a remarkable man, with a great gift to write and sing worship songs ... my brother in law ... he has not published much recently which is a shame as he has a great talent

Hello Matthew Baker again.

I wrote to you sometime ago about finding the hymn called I will be with you wherever you by Gerrard Markland and on 30th September on Radio Two's 40th birthday I heard it being played then together with my name being mentioned as I requested it and thanks to so many other people who like this hymn on this page.

Why can't I access the lyrics and music on the internet and how can I compose the song myself if the song can't be found on the net?

Kind Regards

Matthew Baker

This is my first post, and just wondering if I can join the thread.
I have a question about the hymn that have the lyrics above for "Will be with you".
Is that the same hymn from the book of ruth "whereever you will go" as I cannot get it anywhere. I don't know the lyrics for it so unsure if it's the same??
Posted:  07 Feb 2008 22:12
There is a third verse for Side by Side that I have heard over the past few years.  I think it is a fitting conclusion to the song.

Soon we will be there, in that heaven so fair.
Singing praises to our King.
Jesus will come and say to each one,
“You have been faithful to the end.”

I lift my hands toward heaven,

something like that..
