Full Text

1 From Egypt’s cruel bondage fled,
Obedient to our Lord’s command,
And by His word and spirit led,
We’re on the way to Canaan’s land!

We’re on the way, a pilgrim band;
We’re on the way to Canaan’s land;
Divinely guided day by day,
We’re on the way, we’re on the way.

2 Thor’ wildernesses wide and drear,
Our Lord will guide our steps aright,
Behold! to prove His presence here,
The cloud by day, the fire by night! [Refrain]

3 His pow’r the smitten rock controls,
A crystal stream our need supplies,
He feeds our hungry, fainting souls
With daily manna from the skies! [Refrain]

4 In hostile lands we feel no fear;
No foe our onward march can stay;
In ev’ry conflict He is near,
Whose presence cheers us on the way. [Refrain]

5 Ere long, the river cross’d, we’ll meet
The ransom’d host at His right hand;
And there receive a welcome sweet,
From our dear Lord to Canaan’s land! [Refrain]
