1 On River Jordan's banks I stand,
and cast a wishful eye
Upon the 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 There generous fruits that never fail
on trees immortal grow.
There rocks and hills and brooks and vales
with milk and honey flow. [Refrain]

3 All o'er those wide extended plains
shines one eternal day.
There God, the Sun, forever reigns,
and scatters night away. [Refrain]

4 When I shall reach that happy place,
and be forever blessed?
When shall I see my Maker's face,
when in God's bosom rest? [Refrain]

5 Filled with delight, my raptured soul
can here no longer stay.
Though Jordan's waves around me roll,
fearless I'll sail away. [Refrain]
