On Jordan’s Stormy Banks

Play

This hymn has a lovely American melody.

Lyrics: Samuel Sennett
Music: Traditional American Hymn

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.

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

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.

Play
