Nathan Sarvis ( Lyr Req: Farewell My Friends I'm Bound for Canaan (14) RE: cannan's land 07 Mar 97

The song is in the Sacred Harp hymnal (page 267 in the 1991 Denson Revision). The lyrics are as you have them. The arrangement is credited to John G. McCurry and dated 1842. The Sacred Harp hymnal is comprehensively indexed on the Fasola Homepage Lots of additional information about this interesting old style of folk hymn singing that is being rediscovered after being in danger of dying out.
