THE PROMISED LAND




On Jordanís stormy banks I stand,
And cast a wishful eye,
To Canaanís 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.



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

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.



Filled with delight, my raptured soul
Would here no longer stay!
Though Jordanís waves
around me roll,
Fearless Iíd launch away.

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.
