1 On Jordan's stormy banks I stand,
And cast a wishful eye
To Canaan's fair and happy land,
Where my possessions lie.

Refrain:
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 those wide extended plains
Shines one eternal day;
There God the Sun for ever reigns,
And scatters night away. Refrain

3 No chilling winds, or poisonous breath,
Can reach that healthful shore;
Sickness and sorrow, pain and death,
Are felt and fear'd no more. Refrain

4 When shall I reach that happy place,
And be for ever blest?
When shall I see my Father's face,
And in his bosom rest? Refrain
