On Jordan's Stormy Banks I Stand

The United Methodist Hymnal Number 724
Text: Samuel Stennett, 1727-1795
Music: The Southern Harmony; arr. by Rigdon M. McIntosh
Tune: PROMISED LAND, Meter: CM with Refrain

1.	On Jordan's stormy banks I stand, 
	and cast a wishful eye 
	to Canaan's fair and happy land, 
	where my possessions lie. 
	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. 

2.	O'er all those wide extended plains 
	shines one eternal day; 
	there God the Son forever reigns, 
	and scatters night away. 

3.	No chilling winds or poisonous breath 
	can reach that healthful shore; 
	sickness and sorrow, pain and death, 
	are felt and feared no more. 

4.	When I shall reach that happy place, 
	I'll be forever blest, 
	for I shall see my Father's face, 
	and in his bosom rest.
