Hymn/Song Information

On Jordan's rugged banks I stand And cast a




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


Oh, the transporting rapturous scene
That rises to my sight!
Sweet fields arrayed in living green
And rivers of delight!


There generous fruits that never fail.
On trees immortal grow
There rocks, and hills, and brooks and vales
With milk and honey flow


O'er all those wide extended plains
Shines one eternal day;
There God the Son forever reigns,
And scatters night away.


No chilling winds or poisonous breath
Can reach that healthful shore;
Sickness and sorrow, pain and death,
Are felt and feared no more.


When I shall reach that happy place,
I'll be forever blest,
For I shall see my Father's face,
And in His bosom rest.


Filled with delight, my raptured soul
Can here no longer stay
Though Jordan's waves around me roll
Fearless, I'd launch away

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


All oíer those wide, extended plains
Shines one eternal day!
There God the Son forever reigns,
And scatters night away.


No chilling winds, nor poisonous breath
Can reach that healthful shore;
Sickness and sorrow, pain and death,
Are felt and feared no more.


When shall I reach that happy place,
And be for ever blest?
When shall I see my Fatherís face,
And in his bosom rest?


Filled with delight. My raptured soul
Would here no longer stay;
Though Jordanís waves around me roll,
Fearless I'd launch away.
