We are bound for Canaan land,
Tenting by the way;
Who shall lead us on the road?
Choose your king today.

Refrain

Dare to stand like Joshua,
Dare to say the word;
As for me and for my house,
We will serve the Lord.

Many trials we have seen,
Thus far on our way;
He hath led us safely thro’;
Shall He lead today?

Refrain

When the dark Red Sea of doubt
Billowed in our way;
Then He parted every wave—
So He will today.

Refrain

Can we safely trust a guide
Who knows not the way?
God hath traveled every foot—
Shall He lead today?

Refrain

Just before us Jordan rolls,
Right across the way;
We can safely trust the Lord,
He shall lead today.

Refrain
