Hymn/Song Information

On Jordan's stormy 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.
All o’er those wide, extended plains
Shines one eternal day!
There God the Son forever reigns,
And scatters night away.


When shall I reach that happy place,
And be forever blest?
When shall I see my Father's face,
And in his bosom rest?
Filled with delight, my raptured soul
Would here no longer stay:
Though Jordan's waves around me roll,
Fearless I'd launch away.


---Alternative verses---


O'er all these 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.
