Jordanís Banks 557

Tune: Thomas Willard Loftin, 1927
Lyrics: Samuel Stennett, 1787
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
On Jordan's stormy banks I stand,
An cast a wishful eye,
To Canaan's fair and happy land,
Where my possessions lie.

Chorus:

I am bound, yes I'm bound,
I am bound for the promised land;
Won't you come and go with me?
I am bound for the promised land.
