On Jordan's Stormy Banks

E B7 On Jordan's stormy banks I stand, E B7 And cast a wishful eye E To Canaan's fair and happy land, B7 E Where my possessions lie. Chorus: E B7 I am bound for the promised land, E I am bound for the promised land; Oh who will come and go with me? B7 E I am bound for the promised land. O the transporting, rapturous scene, That rises to my sight! Sweet fields arrayed in living green, And rivers of delight! Chorus There generous fruits that never fail, On trees immortal grow; There rocks and hills, and brooks and vales, With milk and honey flow. Chorus O'er all those wide extended plains Shines one eternal day; There God the Son forever reigns, And scatters night away. Chorus No chilling winds or poisonous breath Can reach that healthful shore; Sickness and sorrow, pain and death, Are felt and feared no more. Chorus 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. Chorus Filled with delight my raptured soul Would here no longer stay; Though Jordan's waves around me roll, Fearless I'd launch away. Chorus
