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.
