1. Come all ye dear souls, who are of Adam’s loin,
Join with me for to seek salvation;
With hearts full of friendship let us all combine,
And seek for the good land of Canaan.
Canaan, Canaan, my happy home,
O how I long for Canaan.

2. We've a little sister, lately converted,
She brings to us good news from Canaan,
Her soul's filled with Jesus, the world deserted,
And now she lives shouting and praising.
Canaan, Canaan, my happy home,
O how I long for Canaan.

 

3. So once I did mourn, but O! now I can sing,
And will praise my great Lord and Savior;
And when in the realms of my heavenly King,
I will shout, and will sing forever.
Canaan, Canaan, my happy home,
O when shall I see Canaan?

4. But see the poor sinners, that stand at the bar,
And despair of the hope of heaven;
They tremble and shiver in doleful despair,
And from God’s awful presence driven.
Canaan, Canaan, my happy home,
O how I long for Canaan.

 

5. Come all my dear brethren, let us travel on,
Let us go to the land of Canaan;
And when all our pilgrimage journey is done,
Then we'll shout, and we’ll sing salvation.
Canaan, Canaan, my happy home,
O how we’ll shout for Canaan.
