Meter: Long Meter Half (8,8)
O who will come and go with me?
I am bound for the promised land,
Iím bound fair Canaanís land to see,
I am bound for the promised land.

Chorus:

I will shout His praise in glory,
So will I, so will I,
And weíll all sing hallelujah by and by.

My heavínly home is bright and fair,
I am bound for the promised land,
No pain or death can enter there,
I am bound for the promised land.

(Chorus)

Its glittíring towers the sun outshine,
I am bound for the promised land,
That heavínly mansion shall be mine,
I am bound for the promised land.

(Chorus)

My Fatherís house is built on high,
I am bound for the promised land,
Far, far above the starry sky,
I am bound for the promised land.

(Chorus)
