I'll Be There (When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder/When We All Get to Heaven/On Jordan's Stormy Banks). Composed by Mary Mcdonald. For SATB choir, piano (with optional rhythm section, 2 trumpets, 2 trombones). Sacred Anthem, Eastertide, General. Octavo. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.10-4337L).
This anthem is a lively fusion of Mary's three favorite gospel songs, and it perfectly frames an excitement and longing for Christ's return. The addition of a McDonald original sustains the bouncy gospel feel and paints a victorious picture of going home to heaven's glory.
