When they reached the Valley of Eschol, they cut off a branch bearing a single cluster of grapes. Two of them carried it on a pole between them, along with some pomegranates and figs.@Numbers 13:23

Haldor Lillenas (1885–1959)

Why wander in the wilderness, O fainting soul?
Come over into Canaan land;
By faith cross over Jordan tho’ the waves may roll,
Come over into Canaan land.

Refrain

Come over into Canaan land,
Come over into Canaan land;
Where the grapes of Eschol grow,
Where the milk and honey flow,
Come over into Canaan land.

Its sun-kissed mountains rise above the valley fair,
Come over into Canaan land;
And luscious fruits delectable grow everywhere,
Come over into Canaan land.

Refrain

Sweet songs of triumph ring within its borders bright,
Come over into Canaan land;
No burning sands, but fountains sparkling with delight,
Come over into Canaan land.

Refrain

This charming land of Canaan is a land of love,
Come over into Canaan land;
And thro’ it we must pass to reach our home above,
Come over into Canaan land.

Refrain
