Hymns - On Jordan's Stormy Banks I Stand





 

Artist: Hymns
Album: Unknown
Title: On Jordan's Stormy Banks I Stand

On Jordanís stormy banks I stand,
And cast a wishful eye
To Canaanís 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.

O the transporting, rapturous scene,
That rises to my sight!
Sweet fields arrayed in living green,
And rivers of delight!

Refrain

There generous fruits that never fail,
On trees immortal grow;
There rocks and hills, and brooks and vales,
With milk and honey flow.

Refrain

Oíer all those wide extended plains
Shines one eternal day;
There God the Son forever reigns,
And scatters night away.

Refrain

No chilling winds or poisonous breath
Can reach that healthful shore;
Sickness and sorrow, pain and death,
Are felt and feared no more.

Refrain

When I shall reach that happy place,
Iíll be forever blest,
For I shall see my Fatherís face,
And in His bosom rest.

Refrain

Filled with delight my raptured soul
Would here no longer stay;
Though Jordanís waves around me roll,
Fearless Iíd launch away.

Refrain
