Why Wander In The Wilderness


Why wander in the wilderness, O fainting soul,
Come over into Canaan land;
By faith cross over Jordan tho’ the waves may roll,
Come over into Canaan land.

Refrain:
Come over into Canaan land,
Come over into Canaan land,
Where the grapes of Eschol grow,
Where the milk and honey flow,
Come over into Canaan land.

Its sun-kiss’d mountains rise above the valley fair,
Come over into Canaan land;
And luscious fruits delectable grow ev’rywhere,
Come over into Canaan land. [Refrain]

Sweet songs of triumph ring within its borders bright,
Come over into Canaan land;
No burning sands but fountains sparkling with delight,
Come over into Canaan land. [Refrain]

This charming land of Canaan is a land of love,
Come over into Canaan land;
And thro’ it we must pass to reach our home above,
Come over into Canaan land. [Refrain]
