Representative Text

1 I’ve entered the land dearly bought by His blood,
Passed over Jordan, surrendered to God;
I’ve found His sufficiency here in this land,
Glory to Jesus forever!

Far, far on the other side,
I’m living across the river,
Burned are the bridges ’twixt me and the world,
Glory to Jesus forever!

2 The giants are conquered the spies said were here,
Jesus is victor, I need have no fear;
Summer in winter and joy all the year,
Glory to Jesus forever! [Refrain]

3 The manna is gone and the corn is my food,
Dead to the world and I’m living in God;
I’ve ceased saying can’t since I found that He could—
Glory to Jesus forever! [Refrain]
