Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 There are glories untold in that city of gold,
On the brink of the beautiful river;
Its wonderful light will burst on my sight,
But what will it be to see Jesus?

Refrain:
What will it be to see Jesus?
What will it be to see Him?
There are glories untold in that city of gold,
But what will it be to see Jesus?

2 There are some who have died that His name should abide,
There are some who have lived for His glory;
What bliss will it be, their faces to see,
But what will it be to see Jesus? [Refrain]

3 When in wonder I stand with my hand in His hand,
In the home with the ransomed forever,
The sorrow all past, triumphant at last,
Oh, what will it be to see Jesus? [Refrain]

4 When the love-light doth shine from His eyes into mine,
While the face that was marred is uplifted,
With rapture complete, His smile I shall meet,
Oh, what will it be to see Jesus? [Refrain]
