128 THE PROMISED LAND
to the Cooper book version of this tune
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'm bound for the promised land.
Oh, who will come and go with me,
I am bound for the promised land.
O the transporting, rapt'rous scene
That rises to my sight!
Sweet fields arrayed in living green,
And rivers of delight.
Filled with delight, my raptured soul
Would here no longer stay!
Though Jordan's waves around me roll,
Fearless I'd launch away.
