Why Longer Wander In The Desert


Why longer wander in the desert,
And let the sea of sin divide?
Before you lies the land of Canaan,
Come across to the other side.

Refrain:
Come across to the other side,
No longer let the seas divide;
Before you lies the land of Canaan,
Come across to the other side.
Come across to the other side,
Where God hath ev’ry need supplied,
Before you lies the land of Canaan,
Come across to the other side.

In Canaan’s land of peace and plenty,
Our God hath ev’ry need supplied;
Be faith take hold of ev’ry promise,
Come across to the other side. [Refrain]

On desert plains of doubt and worry,
Why will you longer there abide,
When there’s a land of milk and honey?
Come across to the other side. [Refrain]
