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, 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

When I stand in yonder city

Full 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]
