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

All o'er those wide extended plains
Shines one eternal day
There God, the Son forever reigns
And scatters night away

And I am bound, I am bound
I am bound for the Promise Land
And I am bound, I am bound
I am bound for the Promise Land

No chilling wind nor poisonous breath
Can reach that healthful shore
Where sickness, sorrow, pain and death
Are felt and feared no more

And I am bound, I am bound
I am bound for the Promise Land
And I am bound, I am bound
I am bound for the Promise Land, yeah

When shall I see that happy place
And be forever blessed?
When shall I see my Father's face
And in His bosom rest?

And I am bound, I am bound
I am bound for the Promise Land
I am bound, I am bound
I am bound for the Promise Land

I am bound, I am bound
I am bound for the Promise Land
I am bound, I am bound
I am bound for the Promise Land
