I AM BOUND FOR THE PROMISED LAND
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
Shines one eternal day,
There God the Son for ever reigns
And scatters night away.
3. No chilling winds nor pois’nous
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 for ever blest?
When shall I see the Father’s face,
And in His bosom rest?
