O When Shall I See Jesus

O, when shall I see Jesus, And reign with Him above,

And from the flowing fountain Drink everlasting love?

I’m on my way to Canaan, I’m on my way to Canaan,

I’m on my way to Canaan, To the new Jerusalem.

When shall I be delivered From this vain world of sin,

And with my blessed Jesus Drink endless pleasures in?

I’m on my way to Canaan, I’m on my way to Canaan,

I’m on my way to Canaan, To the new Jerusalem.

But now I am a soldier, My Captain’s gone before;

He’s given me my orders, And bids me ne’er give o’er.

I’m on my way to Canaan, I’m on my way to Canaan,

I’m on my way to Canaan, To the new Jerusalem.

Thru grace I am determined To conquer, tho’ I die,

And then away to Jesus On wings of love I’ll fly.

I’m on my way to Canaan, I’m on my way to Canaan,

I’m on my way to Canaan, To the new Jerusalem.

Whene’er you meet with troubles And trials on your way,

Then cast your care on Jesus, And don’t forget to pray.

I’m on my way to Canaan, I’m on my way to Canaan,

I’m on my way to Canaan, To the new Jerusalem.

Gird on the gospel armour Of faith, and hope, and love,

And when the combat’s ended, He’ll carry you above.

I’m on my way to Canaan, I’m on my way to Canaan,

I’m on my way to Canaan, To the new Jerusalem.

O, do not be discouraged, For Jesus is your friend;

And if you lack for knowledge, He’ll not refuse to lend.

I’m on my way to Canaan, I’m on my way to Canaan,

I’m on my way to Canaan, To the new Jerusalem.

Neither will He upbraid you, Tho’ often you request,

He’ll give you grace to conquer, And take you home to rest.

I’m on my way to Canaan, I’m on my way to Canaan,

I’m on my way to Canaan, To the new Jerusalem.
