Carter Family, The - On My Way To Canaan's Land Lyrics




I'm on my way to Canaan's land
I'm on my way to Canaan's land
I'm on my way to Canaan's land
I'm on my way (Praise God) I'm on my way

If father won't go, it won't hinder me
If father won't go, it won't hinder me
If father won't go, it won't hinder me
I'm on my way (Praise God) I'm on my way

If mother won't go, it won't hinder me
If mother won't go, it won't hinder me
If mother won't go, it won't hinder me
I'm on my way (Praise God) I'm on my way

If sister won't go, it won't hinder me
If sister won't go, it won't hinder me
If sister won't go, it won't hinder me
I'm on my way (Praise God) I'm on my way

Oh, be baptized in Jesus's name
Oh, be baptized in Jesus's name
Oh, be baptized in Jesus's name
I'm on my way (Praise God) I'm on my way

I'm on my way to Canaan's land
I'm on my way to Canaan's land
I'm on my way to Canaan's land
I'm on my way (Praise God) I'm on my way

Carter Family, The On My Way To Canaan's Land Comments

  3. Hedgehog's Right of Passage

    In EVERY religion but ONE we find 2 themes. 1) Each person can achieve her/his own salvation.2) That NO one will achieve salvation until the Messiah reveals himself, the and the rising of the dead. This is so in 2 different thoughts of Buddhism,Christianity, Islam,etc.Torah Judaism though says that ALL HUMANS regardless of which religion may achieve a portion in the World To Come (when Messiah reveals himself, and at the time of the rising of the Dead. (Not that ALL Jews will, or no Gentiles may, but each on a personal basis, BUT the THEME is that there is NO Salvation until all those receive it together as one. Until then the souls in Heaven REST each in their abode and rise closer to G-d. CLOSER is not much. The number 1 compared to Infinity and the number 1 Billion compared to Infinity are all the same. Close.

  4. Hedgehog's Right of Passage

    Cont.:B"H, How about if we have a good record of good deeds, but we ONE time in our life wrote a not-so-pleasant message in Facebook, Twitter etc. We get up to judgement and G-d says: "Did you know , the person you wrote harshly to killed himself 2 minutes after reading you comment"? ooops.

  5. Hedgehog's Right of Passage

    B"H, would ALL Christians say "If Mother won't go, it won't hinder me"? Especially since WHO can say what judgement will be. Imagine if a person keeps a record of all her/his good deeds and the not-so-good deeds, and does repentance on the not-good. What about the GOOD deeds? Were they done selflessly, or maybe once a year we might do a good deed especially since the Church Folk are looking on....Are we criminal,police and judge all in One?

    Hedgehog's Right of Passage

    In Torah Judaism if a Jew was heard to say by his community "If Mother won't go, it won't hinder me". He would be sat down and explained to that MAYBE his Mother did not go with the Lord simply because he didn't have a "Love Your Neighbor" in decent proportion and his Mom thought: "So, if this is a religious person, what do I need it for" We are all OUR Brother's Keepers, and even the keepers of those humans we have yet to meet but will.

  6. Johnny Adriel

    Jesus brought me 2019.🖐👍

    Hedgehog's Right of Passage

    B"H, Hello John! Often I look at the usernames. Is there a meaning to "Adriel" Do you mean it as Adri-EL? עדרי עדר means "Flocks" or "Herds". In that case Adriel would mean "The Lord is my flock". To say Flock of G-d it would be: עדראל like Daniel

  7. Fr Louie Goad

    Riches are for Heaven not of this world.

  8. Ray Unseitig

  17. fscofi

    If I should make it to Canaan"s Land the very first person I want to meet is A P Carter, then Will Rogers. After that I don't really care.

    Steve Roberts

    I will add Woody Guthrie who took most of his melodies for his classic songs from the Carter Family--including "This Land is Your Land." (From "Pal of Mine.")
