He is there
When the first uncertain breath of life is taken
He is with us when our mortal souls awaken
So unaware

He is there
Close beside us in each moment we are given
There to light our way, and lead us home to heaven
He is there

He is there with love beyond our understanding
Watching o’er us with a Father’s tender care
With all His might and mercy never-ending
He is there
He is there

He is there
When we’ve lost our way and wander in our blindness
Help unfailing, when no other help can find us
In our despair
He is there

When our broken hearts reach out to Him for healing
There to lift us up and set our spirits singing
He is there

(Repeat chorus)

He is there
Oh, the comfort in His promise of salvation
How we praise His name in songs of adoration and grateful prayer

He is there
There to share in all our joy and still our weeping
Ever constant, ever faithful, never ceasing
He is there

(Repeat chorus)

  1. Elle

    I’m adding another comment about the violin music – could you possibly add it to the sheet music downloads?
    Thank you!

  2. Jeanette Murray

    I need this song for an alto voice, it is too high. Please say you have piano sheet music for a lower voice.

  3. Jeanette Murray

    Do you have “He is There” for an alto soloist and with sheet music for piano and violin

  4. Brenda

    If anyone could put to music what is in my heart …you certainly have in He is There! Blessings by the bushels!

  5. Ramona Lorenz

    I am looking at this song He is There, and wondering if you have sheet music for the violin to go with it?

    • James Loynes

      Hi Jestin,

      Thank you so much for that. I am so blessed to be able to sing Sally’s beautiful songs. They obviously touch your heart and give you strength in the way they do for me also.
      I know that in times of illness or other difficult times, the Lord can give us strength to cope through the wonderful things around us. I’m so glad you find strength through beautiful and inspiring music… and Sally’s website is definitely a good place to find it 🙂
      All the best and take care of yourself,

    Dear Sally,
    I need to thank you again for your wonderful music. Today, John Hays and I shared “He Is There.” The scripture lesson for the day talked about how Jesus is there for us to “reach out and touch.”
    As I sang and John played the accompaniment, I could see by the expressions on the faces of the congregants that the words of the song had great meaning for them.

    A lady came up to me as she was returning to her seat following her participation in communion and told me how much she enjoyed my singing. Then she said, “That song was beautiful. I have never heard it before! The words spoke to me!” I told her that a “friend” of mine from out west writes beautiful music, several pieces that we have shared over the years. I told her that I would pass on her comments to you. She was indeed delighted!

    Sally, you are genuinely blessed. You are a living example of what Christ wants us to do: take our God given talents and share them with the “community,” encouraging all to LOVE as Christ loved. Your music inspires me, and I know that it inspires John. Here is what he said to me in an email this afternoon:

    “Thanks so much for sharing this morning, Bren and thanks for letting me accompany you; simply beautiful and such a brilliant message.”

    Both John and I stand in awe of your talent and dedication to the Lord.

    Thank you again for sharing these messages with us. I would love to hear from you.

    Yours in Christ,
    Brenda Reynolds

    PS: on August 23, I will be singing “Safe in Thy Loving Arms.” John will also be accompanying me. Thank you!

      Brenda, I’m so glad to be your friend from out west! Thanks so much for that! 🙂 🙂
