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;
O 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. [Refrain]
3 When shall I reach that happy place
and be forever blest?
When shall I see my Father's face
and in his bosom rest? [Refrain]
4 Filled with delight, my raptured soul
would here no longer stay;
though Jordan's waves around me roll,
fearless I'd launch away. [Refrain]
