Caanan's Land


  Would you please indulge me and go listen to Kate Rusby sing the hymn, Caanan's Land ?

Caanan's Land 
written in 1914
by William Golding
1878-1934

To Canaan’s land I’m on my way
Where the soul of man never dies
Where all my nights will turn to day
The soul of man never dies

CHORUS
Dear friends there’ll be no sad farewell
There’ll be no tear-dimmed eye
Where all is joy and peace and love
Where the soul of man never dies

A rose is blooming there for me
Where the soul of man never dies
It blooms for all eternity
Where the soul of man never dies

CHORUS

A love light beams across the foam
Where the soul of man never dies
It shines to light the shores of home
Where the soul of man never dies

CHORUS

My life will end in deathless sleep
Where the soul of man never dies
And everlasting joy I’ll reap
Where the soul of man never dies

CHORUS

I’m on my way to that fair land
Where the soul of man never dies
Where there will be no parting and
The soul of man never dies

CHORUS
