O who will come and go with me?

Iím bound fair Canaanís land to see,
I am bound for the land of Canaan.

O Canaan, sweet Canaan,
Iím bound for the land of Canaan,
Sweet Canaan, ítis my happy home;
I am bound for the land of Canaan.

Iíll join with those whoíre gone before,
I am bound for the land of Canaan.
Where sin and sorrow are no more,
I am bound for the land of Canaan.
