Representative Text

1 We are bound for Canaan land,
Tenting by the way;
Who shall lead us on the road?
Choose your king today.

Dare to stand like Joshua,
Dare to say the word;
As for me and for my house,
We will serve the Lord.

2 Many trials we have seen,
Thus far on our way;
He hath led us safely thro’,
Shall he lead today? [Refrain]

3 When the dark Red sea of doubt,
Billow’d in our way;
Then he parted ev’ry wave—
So he will today. [Refrain]

4 Can we safely trust a guide
Who knows not the way;
God hath traveled ev’ry foot,
Shall he lead today? [Refrain]

5 Just before us Jordan rolls,
Right across the way;
We can safely trust the Lord,
He shall lead today. [Refrain]
