Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Together let us sweetly live,
I am bound for the land of Canaan,
Together let us sweetly die,
I am bound for the land of Canaan.

Refrain:
Oh, Canaan, bright Canaan,
I am bound for the land of Canaan,
Oh, Canaan, it is my happy home,
I am bound for the land of Canaan.

2 If you get there before I do,
I am bound for the land of Canaan,
Then praise the Lord, I’m coming too,
I am bound for the land of Canaan. [Refrain]

3 Part of my friends the prize have won,
I am bound for the land of Canaan,
And I’m resolved to follow on,
I am bound for the land of Canaan. [Refrain]

4 Then come with me, beloved friend,
I am bound for the land of Canaan,
The joys of heaven shall never end,
I am bound for the land of Canaan. [Refrain]

5 Our songs of praise shall fill the skies,
I am bound for the land of Canaan,
While higher still our joys they rise,
I am bound for the land of Canaan. [Refrain]
