I wandered through the wilderness,
But God reached out His hand,
And drew me safe to Canaan’s shore;
I’m in the promised land.

Refrain

I am in the promised land, hallelujah!
I have reached the land of corn and wine;
I have joined the happy band, hallelujah!
And the blessèd promised land is mine.

The Lord upholds me by His grace,
And will no ill allow;
He leads me on from height to height,
And sanctifies me now.

Refrain

My eyes are fixed on Him alone,
I’m pressing for the goal;
And as I climb the mountainside,
His glory fills my soul.

Refrain

The Holy Spirit guides me in
The path my master trod;
With songs of rapture all today
I praise the Lamb of God.

Refrain
