1. On Jordan's stormy banks I stand, and cast a wistful 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;
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 Son for ever reigns and scatters night away.
3. No chilling winds nor poisonous breath can reach that healthful shore;
Sickness and sorrow, pain and death are felt and feared no more.
4. When shall I reach that happy place and be forever blest?
When shall I see my Father's face and in His bosom rest?
