1. On Jordan's stormy banks I stand And cast a wishful eye To Canaan's fair and happy land Where my possessions lie. (Refrain) 2. All o'er those wide extended plains Shines one eternal day; There God the Son forever reigns And scatters night away. (Refrain) 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. (Refrain) 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? (Refrain) Refrain: 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.
