I have left the land of bondage with it's earthly treasures
I've journeyed to the place where there is love on every hand
I've exchanged the land of heartaches for the land of pleasure
I'm camping, I'm camping, in Canaan's happy land

Every day I'm camping (camping) in the land of Canaan (Canaan)
And in rapture I survey it's wondrous beauty grand (Oh, Glory)
Glory, hallelujah (I have) found the land of promise
(And I'm) camping, I'm camping, in Canaan's happy land

Out of Egypt I have traveled through the darkness dreary
Far over hills and valleys and across the desert sands
Thoughts of land that's safe and homeward I shall not go weary
I'm camping, I'm camping, in Canaan's happy land

Yes I've reached the land of promise with the saints of glory
My journey ended in a place so lovely and so grand
I've been led by Jesus to this blessed land of story
I'm camping, I'm camping, in Canaan's happy land
