On Jordan's Stormy Banks I Stand
Hymn lyrics and .mp3 Download
1. On Jordan's stormy banks I stand, and cast a wishful eye to Canaan's fair and happy land, where my possessions lie.
Refrain: 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.
2. O'er all those wide extended plains shines one eternal day; there God the Son forever reigns, and scatters night away. (Refrain)
3. No chilling winds or poisonous breath can reach that healthful shore; sickness and sorrow, pain and death, are felt and feared no more. (Refrain)
4. 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. (Refrain)
