1 On Jordan's stormy bank 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;
oh, 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 forever reigns
and scatters night away. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]

4 When shall I reach that happy place
and be forever blest?
When shall I see my Savior's face
and in God's bosom rest? [Refrain]
