Promised Land

Written by M.D. Green.

The sun is shining the children smiling
as they walk along the golden sand
the chosen people have climbed the steeple
on their way to the promised land

Across the river away from sorrow 
and on to freedom where there's peace of mind
someone beside them someone to guide them
on their way to the promised land

And by the river I'll be with you all the way

break:

And by the river I'll be with you all the way

There's milk and honey it's always sunny
The people sing with their head in hand
and soon their patience will be rewarded
and they shall walk in the promised land

And by the river I'll be with you all the way

The sun is shining the children smiling
as they walk along the golden sand
the chosen people have climbed the steeple
on their way to the promised land

And by the river I'll be with you all the way

The sun is shining the children smiling
as they walk along the golden sand
the chosen people have climbed the steeple
on their way to the promised land

And by the river I'll be with you all the way
