I'm Bound For The Promised Land Lyrics

by Johnny Cash

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 am bound for the Promised Land
Oh who will come and go with me?
I am bound for the Promised Land

Over all those wide extended plains
Shines one eternal day
There God the Son forever reigns
And scatters night away

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

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

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
