27. I AM BOUND FOR CANAAN

  1. Storms do not alarm me,

    They sometime must cease,

    Trails cannot harm me,

    For I have blessed peace;

    All I’ve left behind me,

    I long for no more,

    Better things shall find me

    On Canaan’s shore.

    Chorus:

    Let those who will stay in Egypt land,

    I am bound for Canaan,

    Where milk and honey flowing,

    Shall ev’ry need supply;

    All battles fought and

    The vict’ry won,

    Peace and joy my portion,

    My soul shall rest,

    On its shore by and by.

  2. Troubles do not fret me,

    They cannot abide,

    Tho’ they may beset me,

    In Jesus, I will hide;

    All the world’s commotion

    About me may roar,

    There’s no stormy ocean

    On Canaan’s shore.

  3. I in grace abiding,

    Am trying to stay,

    In the shadow hiding

    Of Canaan’s perfect day;

    All I trust may fail me,

    Twill matter no more,

    Nothing can assail me

    On Canaan’s shore.

STEPS TO SALVATION
1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
