I’m Bound for the Promised Land

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand
And cast a wishful eye
To Canaan’s fair and happy land
Where my possessions lie

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 2]
Over all those wide extended plains
Shines one eternal day
There God, the Son forever reigns
And scatters night away

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
No chilling winds or poisonous breath
Can reach that healthful shore
Sickness and sorrow, pain and death
Are felt and feared no more

[Chorus]

[Outro]
When I shall reach that happy place
I’ll be forever blessed
For I shall see my Father’s face
And in His bosom rest
