Verse 1: On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand, And cast a wishful eye. To Canaan’s fair and happy land, Where my possessions lie.
Verse 2: All o’er those wide extended plains, Shines one eternal day. There God, the Son forever reigns, And scatters night away.
Verse 3: No chilling winds nor pois’nous breath, Can reach that healthful shore. Sickness and sorrow, pain and death, Are felt and feared no more.
Verse 4: When shall I reach that happy place, And be forever blessed? When shall I see my Father’s face, and in His bosom rest?
Chorus: I am bound, I am bound, I am bound, I am bound, I am bound for the promised land. I am bound, I am bound, I am bound, I am bound, I am bound for the promised land.
