1 Together let us sweetly live,
I am bound for the land of Canaan,
Together let us sweetly die,
I am bound for the land of Canaan.

Refrain:
Oh, Canaan, bright Canaan,
I am bound for the land of Canaan,
Oh, Canaan, it is my happy home,
I am bound for the land of Canaan.

2 If you get there before I do,
I am bound for the land of Canaan,
Then praise the Lord, I’m coming too,
I am bound for the land of Canaan. [Refrain]

3 Part of my friends the prize have won,
I am bound for the land of Canaan,
And I’m resolved to follow on,
I am bound for the land of Canaan. [Refrain]

4 Then come with me, beloved friend,
I am bound for the land of Canaan,
The joys of heaven shall never end,
I am bound for the land of Canaan. [Refrain]

5 Our songs of praise shall fill the skies,
I am bound for the land of Canaan,
While higher still our joys they rise,
I am bound for the land of Canaan. [Refrain]
