C. M. Robinson

We are bound for Canaan land,

Tenting by the way;

Who shall lead us on the road?

Choose your king today.

Dare to stand like Joshua,

Dare to say the word;

As for me and for my house,

We will serve the Lord.


Many trials we have seen

Thus far on our way;

He hath led us safely through,

Shall He lead today?


When the dark Red Sea of doubt,

Billowed in our way;

Then He parted every wave—

So He will today.


Can we safely trust a guide

Who knows not the way;

God hath traveled every foot,

Shall He lead today?


Just before us Jordan rolls,

Right across the way;

We can safely trust the Lord,

He shall lead today.
