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]
