On Jordan’s Stormy Banks

Both English and Swahili versions of the songs

620 – On Jordan’s Stormy Banks

Major Key: E Flat

1
On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand,
And cast a wishful eye
To Canaan’s fair and happy land,
Where my possessions lie.

CHORUS:
I am bound for the promised land,
I am bound for the promised land;
O who will come and go with me?
I am bound for the promised land.

2
O’er all those wide extended plains
Shines one eternal day;
There, Christ, the Sun, for ever reigns,
And scatters night away.

3
When shall I reach that happy place,
And be forever blest?
When shall I see my Father’s face,
And in His kingdom rest?

4
Filled with delight, my raptured soul
Would here no longer stay;
Though Jordan’s waves around me roll,
Fearless I’d launch away.

620

178 – Ukingoni Mwa Tordani
“On Jordan”

1
Ukingoni mwa Yordani ninaangalia
Bara nzuri ya Kanaani, ninayotamani.

Chorus
Tutakaa pamoja na Yesu, Katika pwani yenye raha;
Tutaimba wimbo wa Musa na Kondoo, Milele hata milele.

2
Bara ile ina nuru, nuru ya milele;
Kristo, Jua, hutawala, hufukuza giza.

3
Nitapafikia lini na kubarikiwa,
Penye ufalme wa Baba, na kumwona uso?

4
Furaha yangu rohoni ni kuchukuliwa;
Siyaogopi mawimbi katika Yordani.
