We Will Be There With Footnotes
(c) Larry Kenneth Gates, 2008 (lyrics)

At this midpoint of the Five Year Plan
The House calls a pause. (O Ya Baha!)
It is time to gather and reflect
Our future in this Cause.

When the troops are called to teach and serve
We will be there (in Atlanta)2
Marching onward, in the love of God
We will be there.

Say, can't you see? (O Ya Baha!)
Matter and spirit must walk hand in hand
For us to be free.

The system’s power, let us ponder well
We will be there.(O Ya Baha!)
We’ll teach and learn, undistracted, firm
We will be there.

Befriending high and low all alike
We will be there.(O Ya Baha!)
Binding hearts, in the love of God,
We will be there.

Forty and one gatherings ‘round the world
We will be there.(O Ya Baha!)
December sixth, World Congress Center
We will be there.
