DT Lyrics:

Subject: Lyr Add: Bound for Canaan (Tim Eriksen)
Date: 30 Aug 16 - 05:37 AM

I'm on my way to Canaan
I'll bid this world farewell
Come on my fellow travelers
In spite of earth and Hell
Though Satan's army rages hard
And all his hosts combine
Yet scripture doth engage the sword
And strengthen love divine.

The glories of that heavenly land
I've oft times felt before
And what I felt is but a taste
That makes me long for more
Had I the pinions of a dove
I'd fly and be at rest
I'd soar away to worlds above
And dwell among the blessed.

But stop says patience, wait awhile
The crown's for those who fightt
The price for those who run the race
By faith and not by sight
Then faith takes in the pleasing view
Hope waits, love sits and sings
Desire flutters to be gone
But patience clips her wings.

Beautiful song, you should also check out the sacred harp version. Very similar lyrics and message.
