1 On Jordan's stormy banks I stand,
And cast a wishful eye
To Canaan's fair and happy land,
Where my possessions lie.
I am bound for the promised land,
I am bound for the promised land;
O who will come and go with me?
I am bound for the promised land.
2 All o'er all those wide extended plains
Shines one eternal day;
There God the Son forever reigns,
And scatters night away. (Chorus)
3 No chilling winds or pois'nous breath
Can reach that healthful shore;
Sickness and sorrow, pain and death
Are felt and feared no more. (Chorus)
4 When I shall reach that happy place,
And be forever blest?
When shall I see my Father's face,
And in His bosom rest. (Chorus)
