Sung by: Unknown

Click here to listen to the original recording

On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand
And cast a wishful eye
To Canaan’s fair and happy land,
Where my possessions lie.
Oh, the transporting, rapturous scene
That rises to my sight:
Sweet fields arrayed in living green,
And rivers of delight;
Sweet field arrayed in living green,
And rivers of delight.
