1 When I sought the ear of the Strong to save,
How He smil'd on me and my sins forgave;
Now my faith clings fast to my Saviour’s hand,
And I walk with Him on the Border Land.

Refrain:
On the Border Land of Canaan,
On the Border Land of Canaan,
Blessed Border Land of Canaan;
Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

2 On the Border Land there are songs that rise,
There are scenes that burst on my raptured eyes,
Till my heart and soul with delight expand,
While I walk with Him on the Border Land. [Refrain]

3 There is more to see, there is more to know,
For the way grows bright as I onward go;
There are distant views of the golden strand,
That my Saviour gives on the Border Land. [Refrain]

4 When I cross with Him over Jordan’s tide,
And behold His face on the other side,
With a shout of joy I will bless the hand
That was still my Guide on the Border Land. [Refrain]
