Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

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

2.	All o'er those wide extended plains 
	Shines one eternal day; 
	There God the Son forever reigns 
	And scatters night away. 

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

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

	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.
