Jars Of Clay - On Jordan's Stormy Banks I Stand Lyrics

On Jordan's stormy banks I stand
And cast a wishful eye
To Canaan's fair and happy land
Where my possessions lie

All o'er those wide extended plains
Shines one eternal day
There God, the Son forever reigns
And scatters night away.

I am bound, I am bound, I am bound for the Promise Land
I am bound, I am bound, I am bound for the Promise Land

No chilling wind nor poisonous breath
Can reach that healthful shore
Where sickness, sorrow, pain and death
Are felt and feared no more

I am bound, I am bound, I am bound for the Promise Land
I am bound, I am bound, I am bound for the Promise Land

When shall I see that happy place
And be forever blessed
When shall I see my Father's face
And in His bosom rest

I am bound, I am bound, I am bound for the Promise Land
I am bound, I am bound, I am bound for the Promise Land

Jars Of Clay On Jordan's Stormy Banks I Stand Comments
  1. Robert Purnell

    America will soon be destroyed !!!

    The Lord Jesus Christ stated:
    John 13:20.
    Verily, verily, I say unto you, HE THAT RECEIVETH
    WHOMSOEVER I SEND RECEIVETH ME, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

    Therefore, if a man wants to receive Jesus, the man MUST receive the “Messenger” who Jesus sends, in this day the Lord has kept His word, and has sent His prophet.

    The, “Elijah anointing,” (Concerning the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ) is used “TWICE.”

    The first time 2,000 years ago, when God sent John the Baptist, then again in this day.

    At each, “Coming of the Lord,” there is an Elijah prophet who precedes that, “Coming.”

    Jesus said concerning John the Baptist.
    Matthew 3:3.
    For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Elijah, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

    John, “Prepared the way for the Lord,” John did NOT “Restore anything,” as that which would need to be restored, (The full understanding of the whole Bible,) had not yet been given.

    This scripture concerns the Elijah prophet for, “THIS DAY.”
    Matthew 17:11.
    And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elijah truly shall FIRST COME, and RESTORE all things.

    God has fulfilled the above scripture in THIS DAY.

    This scripture also predicts the Elijah prophet for “This day”.....
    Malachi 4:5.
    Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.

    This Elijah prophet comes just before, “The coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord,” which happens in this day.

    We are now living in the last days, God has kept His word and sent that prophet, thereby “Restoring” His word to His Bride.

    One Sunday morning in June, 1933, God gave seven major continuous visions to His prophet William Marrion Branham (Fulfilling Malachi 4:5 + Matthew 17:11 + Revelation 10:7 and other scriptures)

    Five of the seven continuous visions, have already come to pass.

    “The last and seventh vision was wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America.”

    God has raised the dead on FIVE occasions through His chosen vessel.

    God was photographed SIX times, (Veiled in the form of the Pillar of Fire) with His prophet.

    God`s chosen vessel was William Marrion Branham.

    Check out William Branham, God`s “Vindicated Prophet” for the End Time.

    These and other “Prophetical scriptures” fulfilled:
    Malachi 4:5.
    Matthew 17:11.
    Revelation 10:7.
    Revelation 3:14.
    Revelation 1:16 – 20.
    Revelation 2:1.
    Revelation 3:1.

    Watch this amazing testimony on YouTube:
    Ed Byskal - I am a witness (Testimony on William Branham)

    Russia now has a missile which can destroy a nation the size of France or a state the size of Texas, destruction is one button push away.

    The Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of “FORNICATION” and Homosexuality.....
    Jude 7.
    Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to FORNICATION, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of everlasting fire.

    Do you see any fornication and or homosexuality in this day ???

  2. mary poppins

    I'm so thankful you have this song recorded it was in my old him devotional this morning and you had all the verses! Thank you!

    crossing the river Jordan is being baptised with the Holy Ghost and fire

  4. mkl62

    I am an ELCA Lutheran from South Carolina. I play the piano and organ. Today (August 17), I filled in at a local Presbyterian Church. The presiding minister played this over the PA system following her sermon as the Hymn of Reflection.

  5. wecarnivore

     It's so sad this great singer (with talent a gift from God) has now turned against the authority of the Bible.  Et tu, Jars of Clay?

    Jaden Marker

    slipnpitch And have a low view of Scripture I suppose?


    in what way, please clarify ?

    Sola Scriptura

    Many years ago,
    he came out --in a Christian magazine-- voicing support of homosexuality, and homosexual unions.
    I stopped listening to their music-- until today-- when I read that article.

    Sola Scriptura

    Saying "who cares?" is a sorry copout.
    The Ezekiel 33 watchmen "care" for the millions of [impressionable] people being influenced by JOC (and other compromised Christian musicians).
    You err in not seeing the impact of music (and all media) on the individual.


    @Sola Scriptura you have no idea who I am yet like the singer you judge you also judge me. You sound to me exactly the type of Christian that keeps people out of churches. In fact im sure that makes you a pharisee, not a Christian. Its so sad how religious you are. Jesus didn't like religious people very much.

  6. Murl Center

    Redemption has come a long way since Adam.

  7. mh605

    Don't know who that is.

  8. Tony Butte

    except it's not their refrain... it's christopher miner's

  9. MST720

    I finally got the entire album, one of the best decisions I ever made

    Sola Scriptura

    I remember going to a Christian bookstore, just off a military base (when I was active duty).
    Would spend like crazy on the music there; which introduced me to Jeremy Camp, Kari Jobe, Fred Hammond, and JOC.
    Great memories.

  10. Midnight Aaron

    I enjoy this song. However, the CD as a whole was way too country for my tastes.

  11. mh605

    Really nice song! I enjoy that they're using the words from an old hymn, and then adding their own refrain, in the old camp meeting style.

    Sola Scriptura

    ...and featured an "old country Gospel" band (The Blind Boys of Alabama).

  12. Jeff Green

    And all of God's people said; "Wow."
