CANAANLAND IS JUST IN SIGHT
by New Jerusalem Quartet

Moses led God's children forty years he led them,
Through the cold and through the night;
Tho they said, "Let's turn back", Moses said, "Keep goin',
Canaanland is just in sight."

And there will be no sorrow there in that tomorrow,
We will be there by and by;
Milk and honey flowing there is where I'm going,
Canaanland is just in sight.

Now though we walk thru valleys, 'Tho we climb high mountains,
We can not give up the fight;
We must be like Moses, we must keep on going;
Canaanland is just in sight.

And there will be no sorrow there in that tomorrow,
We will be there by and by;
Milk and honey flowing there is where I'm going,
Canaanland is just in sight.

And Canaanland is just in sight!

This fine song was written by Jeff Gibson, along with a number of other great songs.

From what I understand just a few words are incorrect. This is the version I know:


CANAANLAND IS JUST IN SIGHT
by Jeff Gibson

Moses led God's children forty years he led them,
Through the heat and through the night;
Tho they said, "Let's turn back", Moses said, "Keep going,
Canaanland is just in sight."

There will be no sorrow there in that tomorrow,
We will be there by and by;
Milk and honey flowing, there is where we're going,
Canaanland is just in sight.

Now though we walk thru valleys, 'Tho we climb high mountains,
We must not give up the fight;
We must be like Moses, we gotta keep on going;
Canaanland is just in sight.

There will be no sorrow there in that tomorrow,
We will be there by and by;
Milk and honey flowing there is where we're going,
Canaanland is just in sight.

God bless
Caleb

We sing this song at my church and these are the correct lyrics.

CANAANLAND IS JUST IN SIGHT
by Jeff Gibson

Moses led God's children forty years he led them,
Through the cold and through the night;
Tho they said, "Let's turn back", Moses said, "Keep going,
Canaanland is just in sight."

There will be no sorrow there in that tomorrow,
We will be there by and by;
Milk and honey flowing, there is where we're going,
Canaanland is just in sight.

Tho though we walk thru valleys,  Tho we climb high mountains,
We must not give up the fight;
We must be like Moses, we gotta keep on going;
Canaanland is just in sight.

There will be no sorrow there in that tomorrow,
We will be there by and by;
Milk and honey flowing there is where we're going,
Canaanland is just in sight.

We also add these verses.  We sing them right after the last chorus in a row with no chorus in between.

Well I m on my way to Canaanlands
Im on my way to Canaanlands
Im on my way to Canaanlands
Im on my way praise the Lord Im on my way

Well if you dont go, dont hinder me
If you dont go dont hinder me
If you dont go dont hiner me
Im on my way praise the Lord Im on my way

May God Bless

We added an extra verse as well...

Tho' we have some doubters
And some down-and-outers
They will not recieve the prize
So let's set our hearts on heaven
And in faith believing
Canaanland is just in sight

Going to Canaan land
Yes I know
going to Canaan land
On eagle's wings

For Jesus has saved my soul
From the land of bondage
Going to Canaan land
On eagle's wings


Egypt is not my home
It's the land of bondage
Jesus has shed his bloood
On the cross he set me free

dont know the rest!! :-))
