    Verse 1
    Storms do not alarm me, they sometime must cease,
    Trials cannot harm me, for I have blessed peace;
    All I've left behind me, I long for no more,
    Better things shall find me on Canaan's shore.

    Chorus
    Let those who will stay in Egypt land,
    I am bound for Canaan,
    Where milk and honey flowing, shall every need supply;

    All battles fought and the victory won,
    Peace and joy my portion,
    My soul shall rest on its shore by and by.

    Verse 2
    Troubles do not fret me, they cannot abide,
    Though they may beset me, in Jesus, I will hide,
    All the world's commotion about me may roam,
    There's no stormy ocean on Canaan's shore.

    Chorus
    Let those who will stay in Egypt land,
    I am bound for Canaan,
    Where milk and honey flowing, shall every need supply;

    All battles fought and the victory won,
    Peace and joy my portion,
    My soul shall rest on its shore by and by.

    Verse 3
    I in grace abiding, am trying to stay,
    In the shadow hiding of Canaan's perfect day;
    All I trust may fail me, 'twill matter no more,
    Nothing can assail me on Canaan's shore.

    Chorus
    Let those who will stay in Egypt land,
    I am bound for Canaan,
    Where milk and honey flowing, shall every need supply;

    All battles fought and the victory won,
    Peace and joy my portion,
    My soul shall rest on its shore by and by.
