mormon tabernacle choir – bound for the promised land lyrics

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.
o the transporting, rapturous scene,
that rises to my sight!
sweet fields arrayed in living green,
and rivers of delight!

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.
there generous fruits that never fail,
on trees immortal grow;
there rocks and hills, and brooks and vales,
with milk and honey flow.

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’er 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.
no chilling winds or poisonous breath
can reach that healthful sh*r*;
sickness and sorrow, pain and death,
are felt and feared no more.

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,
i’ll be forever blest,
for 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.
filled with delight my raptured soul
would here no longer stay;
though jordan’s waves around me roll,
fearless i’d launch 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.
