1. On Jordan's stormy banks I stand and cast a wishful eye,
T'ward 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. O'er all those wide extended plains shines one eternal day;
There God the Son forever reigns, and scatters night away.
3. When shall I reach that happy place, and be forever blest?
When shall I see my Father's face, and in His bosom rest?
