THE BLISS OF CANAAN




Dwelling now in Canaan land
With the pure and holy band,
Oh, how precious
and how glorious is my rest;
Jesus smiles upon me here,
I am free from doubt and fear,
I am dwelling on
Mount Zionís shining crest.

Glory, glory, glory,
I am glad to tell,
Sanctified and happy,
with my soul ítis well;
Now the Holy Spirit
doth my bosom thrill,
Sweetly I repose within
my Fatherís will.



Now from bondage I am free,
Egyptís hosts are in the sea,
And the wilderness
cannot my spirit hold;
For Iíve tasted honey sweet,
Joy so full and rest complete,
And the glories of
this land are yet untold.

Glory, glory, glory,
I am glad to tell,
Sanctified and happy,
with my soul ítis well;
Now the Holy Spirit
doth my bosom thrill,
Sweetly I repose within
my Fatherís will.



Waters pure as crystal clear,
Springing all around me here,
Fill me to oíerflowing
like a cooling well;
All its glories rich are mine,
As its beauties round me shine,
How with happiness and joy
my heart doth swell.

Glory, glory, glory,
I am glad to tell,
Sanctified and happy,
with my soul ítis well;
Now the Holy Spirit
doth my bosom thrill,
Sweetly I repose within
my Fatherís will.



Of the seed of Abraham,
Heir of God through Christ I am,
And this blessed Canaan
is His will to me;
íCross the Jordanís swelling stream,
Where celestial sunrays gleam,
Richest blessings are
awaiting here for thee.

Glory, glory, glory,
I am glad to tell,
Sanctified and happy,
with my soul ítis well;
Now the Holy Spirit
doth my bosom thrill,
Sweetly I repose within
my Fatherís will.
