On Jordan’s Stormy Banks

They were longing for a better country – a heavenly one. ~Hebrews 11:6

On Jordan’s Stormy Banks

On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand,
And cast a wishful eye
To Canaan’s fair and happy land,
Where my possessions lie.

Chorus
I am bound for promised land;
I am bound for promised land.
O who will come and go with me?
I am bound for promised land.

All o’er those wide extended plains,
Shines one eternal day;
There God the Son forever reigns,
And scatters night away.
Repeat chorus

When shall I reach that happy place,
And be forever blessed?
When shall I see my Father’s face,
And in His bosom rest?
Repeat chorus
