Representative Text

1 I used to think that Canaan
Was somewhere up on high,
Where I perhaps might go
Whene’er I came to die;
But when I came to God,
And at His cross did blow,
I got salvation thro’ the blood
I’m living in Canaan now.

I’m living in Canaan now,
I’m living in Canaan now;
I’m glad to tell, in joy I dwell—
I’m living in Canaan now.

2 A land of peace and plenty,
Where milk and honey flow,
On which the Lord doth smile,
As all who live there know;
I do the will of God,
He daily shows me how;
I stood where good old Joshua stood—
I’m living in Canaan now. [Refrain]

3 A life all reconcil’d;
With Jesus in my soul;
A heart wash’d in the blood,
By Him made fully whole;
From death to life divine,
His seal upon my brow;
He speaks the words, and it is done;
The soul receives it now. [Refrain]

4 This rest to me is giv’n;
Then leave the wilderness!
You’ll find God’s word is true—
You’re able to possess;
So put away all things
That God does not allow;
For if your all to Christ you bring,
You’re living in Canaan now. [Refrain]
