This hymn has a lovely American melody.
Lyrics: Samuel Sennett
Music: Traditional American Hymn
On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand,
And cast a wishful eye
To Canaan’s fair and happy land,
Where my possessions lie.
I am bound for the promised land,
I am bound for the promised land;
Oh who will come and go with me?
I am bound for the promised land.
All o’er those wide extended plains
Shines one eternal day;
There God the Son forever reigns,
And scatters night away.
When I shall reach that happy place,
I’ll be forever blest,
For I shall see my Father’s face,
And in His bosom rest.
