Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

When I stand in yonder city

Representative Text

1. When I stand in yonder city, with its mansions bright and fair,
And behold the angels robed in spotless white,
As I join the hallelujahs of the saved in glory there,
Shall I see you in that city of delight?

When I stand in yonder city,
With its mansions bright and fair,
Shall I see you there my brother?
Will you meet me in that city over there?

2. When I stand in yonder city, and my work on earth is done,
I shall know my labors have not been in vain;
I shall bear a golden scepter, for the souls that I have won
From the chains of bondage to eternal gain. [Refrain]

3. When I stand in yonder city, there’s another I shall see,
Who is fairer than ten thousand saints above;
I shall see the Lord of glory, who hath lived and died for me,
And who loves me with an everlasting love.[Refrain]
