I'm Bound For The Promised Land - Alfred Karnes
C position, standard tuning

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

Chorus: I'm bound for the Promised Land
I'm bound for the Promised Land
Oh, who will come and go with me?
I'm bound for the Promised Land

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

Chorus: I'm bound for the Promised Land
I'm bound for the Promised Land
Oh, who will come and go with me?
I'm bound for the Promised Land

No chilling winds, nor poisons spread
Can reach that healthful shore
Sickness and sorrow, pain and death
Are felt and feared no more

Chorus: I'm bound for the Promised Land
I'm bound for the Promised Land
Oh, who will come and go with me?
I'm bound for the Promised Land

When shall I reach that heavenly place
And be forever blest?
When shall I see my Father's face
And in His bosom rest?

Chorus: I'm bound for the Promised Land
I'm bound for the Promised Land
Oh, who will come and go with me?
I'm bound for the Promised Land

Filled with delight, my raptured soul
Would ever longer stay
Through Jordan's winds around me roar
Fearless I'll launch away
