I am looking for the words to an old hymn from my mother's days of Sunday school.  I have found lyrics to a more recent "beulah land" but it is far from the song I yearn to learn.

Hi Cristi,

Actually, in the hymnal I was editor for, there were two hymns that have the theme of "Beulah Land". Let me know if any of these are what you're looking for

------------------------------

Beulah Land
Edgar Stites / John Sweney

Verse 1

I’ve reached the land of corn and wine,
And all its riches freely mine;
Here shines undimmed one blissful day,
For all my night has passed away.

Refrain

O Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land,
As on thy highest mount I stand,
I look away across the sea,
Where mansions are prepared for me,
And view the shining glory shore,
My Heav’n, my home forever more!

Verse 2

My Savior comes and walks with me,
And sweet communion here have we;
He gently leads me by His hand,
For this is Heaven’s border land.

Verse 3

A sweet perfume upon the breeze,
Is borne from ever vernal trees,
And flowers, that ne’er fading grow
Where streams of life forever flow.

Verse 4

The zephyrs seem to float to me,
Sweet sounds to Heaven’s melody,
As angels with the white robed throng
Join in the sweet redemption song.

------------------------------

Dwelling in Beulah Land
C. Austin Miles

Verse 1

Far away the noise of strife upon my ear is falling.
Then I know the sins of earth beset on every hand.
Doubt and fear and things of earth in vain to me are calling.
None of these shall move me from Beulah Land.

Refrain

I’m living on the mountain, underneath a cloudless sky.
I’m drinking at the fountain that never shall run dry.
O yes! I’m feasting on the manna from a bountiful supply,
For I am dwelling in Beulah Land.

Verse 2

Far below the storm of doubt upon the world is beating.
Sons of men in battle long the enemy withstand.
Safe am I within the castle of God’s Word retreating.
Nothing then can reach me—’tis Beulah Land.

Verse 3

Let the stormy breezes blow, their cry cannot alarm me;
I am safely sheltered here, protected by God’s hand.
Here the sun is always shining, here there’s naught can harm me.
I am safe forever in Beulah Land.

Verse 4

Viewing here the works of God, I sink in contemplation.
Hearing now His blessèd voice, I see the way He planned.
Dwelling in the Spirit here I learn of full salvation.
Gladly I will tarry in Beulah Land.

------------------------------

This third version is a more modern version by Squire Parsons and Glenn West. The lyrics are under copyright, so I can only post a portion here--feel free to e-mail me if you'd like more details.

Beulah Land

I'm kind of homesick for a country
to which I've never been before
No sad goodbyes will there be spoken
and time won't matter anymore

Refrain

Beulah Land I'm longing for you,
and someday on thee I'll stand
There my home shall be eternal.
In Beulah Land, Sweet Beulah land

------------------------------

Those are the ones that come to mind. If you'd like, I can e-mail you PDFs to the first two that contain lyrics and music.

Hope it helps!

God bless,
Steve

BEULAH LAND

Hi, Cristi,

  You might also try this web site:

     http://www.alighthouse.com/land.htm

And there's also a nice version by Marty Raybon that is more down to earth than most:

I was also looking for the lyrics to "Sweet Beulah Land".  It is my husband's father's favorite song.  I am totally irritated with these websites which claim to print accurate lyrics to these old songs.  The second verse of the song goes like this:
"I'm looking now across that river, where my FAITH will end in SIGHT..."  So many sites list the line as "where my FATE will end in sight."  There is not FATE in the Christtian life.  This line describes one of the best things about going to heaven. That is, we will finally SEE all the things we have taken on FAITH in our earthly life.  We won't need FAITH anymore-- our FAITH will end in SIGHT.  We will see Jesus-- praise the Lord.  The mysteries of the FAITH will be revealed.  God promised us that in His Bible.

Hi Guest,

You're absolutely right about the number of inaccurate Web sites pertaining to the lyrics of "Sweet Beulah Land". Although I wouldn't be so hard on them I trust they're trying their best

As you said correctly, the line is "where my faith will end in sight". I believe Mr. Parsons' inspiration came from the apostle Paul's words in 2 Corinthians 5:7. "We live by faith, not by sight."

I love the first line of this hymn, "I'm kind of homesick for a country to which I've never been before". It reminds me of Paul's words in this chapter. He talks about our bodies being like a flimsy tent. But ahead of us is an eternal house in heaven, built by God.

I suppose if I were born as a desert nomad, growing up never knowing anything beyond life in a flimsy tent, if someone told me I'd be moving into a house with electric lights and running water and broadband Internet, I'd say they were out of their mind!

But the home waiting for us in heaven is so unimaginable compared to our earthly bodies, that the only way we can see it by now is by faith. Those who have been blessed to receive the Holy Spirit have a deposit which guarantees their inheritance, but they too need to see it by faith.

But there will be a day when God hands us the shiny new keys and invites us in to our new homes, when we will finally see it for ourselves. I, for one, can't wait

Unfortunately, the hymnal I helped edit doesn't have this hymn in it, but one hymnal that does is The Celebration Hymnal (Hymn #776). You can buy a copy at this link:

Celebration Hymnalhttp://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=namethathymnl-20&l=ur2&o=1

Here are the official lyrics:

1.
I'm kind of homesick for a country
To which I've never been before;
No sad good-byes will there be spoken,
For time won't matter anymore.

Refrain:
Beulah Land, I'm longing for you,
And some day on thee I'll stand;
Where my home shall be eternal--
Beulah land, sweet Beulah land.

2.
I'm looking now across the river
Where my faith will end in sight;
There's just a few more days to labor,
Then I will take my heav'nly flight.

3. I see the lights, I hear the singing;
A brand new song of joy divine.
My soul rejoices just in knowing
That soon these pleasures will be mine.

Thanks,
Steve

I heard the words to Sweet Beulah Land just yesterday at my aunt's funeral.  I haven' been able to get it out of my mind!  The masterful combination of tune and lyrics expresses that homesickness we do feel as Christians.  It's a beautifully touching song, one that I want to hear more and more.  Since my aunt chose the song herself, to be sung at her funeral service, she obviously knew both the song and the longing for Beulah Land.

I first heard this song many years ago as a young girl in the Baptist Church in East Tennessee where I grew up.  There was a brother and sister that would sing this and I remember even then I felt the longing to be in the home that awaits me.  As I grow older the song means more and more.  My parents have both crossed over as their work here on earth was finished.  I long to see them in their new bodies, free of sickness and pain.  As much as I want to see them again, I cannot begin to imagine what it will be like to see my Savior's face.  Beulah Land, I'm longing for you.

Thank you for posting the words to this song.

I have heard this song since I was very young and never understood what it meant until.......When at 32 years old when I ask Jesus to come into my heart and be my Lord. Than and just than it click with me. Now every time I hear Sweet Beulah Land I cry.

After 2 months of a treacherous hospital stay, my Grandma finally jumped aboard the glory train last night.  Several years ago, she asked me to sing Sweet Beulah Land at her funeral.  I hesitated in learning it because of my selfishness.  I felt that practicing the song was morbid.  Now I am days away from fulfilling her request and am scrambling to desensitize myself to it.  It's impossible.  This song is certainly a tribute to those of us who will someday board the train to glory and those who have gone before us.  If anyone reads this before Wednesday 22 Nov 06, please pray that God will provide me with the strength I need to sing my Grandma's last song.  Thanks and God bless.

I thank you all for posting the words, I still sing it in my mind.  I've looked for it everywhere, you don't see it in "any" hymn's these days.  I live in South TX.  I was living in West TX between Abilene and Ft. Worth.  Those little towns I was going to a nursing home and leading the singing every Sunday morning and one of the songs we sang was Sweet Beulah Land.  But we were singing it from a page that had been copied from no telling where.  And the notes looked different than what we see in todays music.  Anyway, I plan to sing it during our Christmas Special at Church.  Everyone is signing up to sing.  The choir will do two or three and then everyone else will be called up according to the order they signed up.  We will have several children.  So I will get back to practicing the words since I hadn't sung the full song in over 3 years.  Thank you again.  God Bless Each And Every One Of You, Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas, Eric Chapa

Hello,
There is this song I used to sing in my childhood titled "There is a Land of Corn and Wine" (Beulah Land).  I believe this song was taken from the "Church Hymnal" of 1940.  Here it is:

Beulah Land (There is a Land of Corn and Wine)

There is a land of Corn and wine,
And all its joys will soon be mine;
There shines undimmed one blissful day,
for earth's dark night has passed away.

My Savior then will walk with me;
O sweet communion that will be!
He"ll gently lead me by the hand,
In that celestial, happy land.

A sweet perfume upon the breeze,
Will come from ever vernal trees,
And flowers that never fading grow,
W(h)ere streams of life forever flow.

The zephyrs then will laden be
with sounds of sweetest melody,
As angels, with the ransomed throng
Join in the sweet redemption song.

Refrain:
O Beulah Land! Sweet Beulah Land!
Upon thy heights I long to stand,
And view the radiant jasper sea,
And mansions fair, prepared for me,
And find on that eternal shore
My heaven my home, forever more.


Hope this helps. Alex Negrillo

Love Beulah land, the one that is actually "I'm dwelling in Beulah Land" an old Methodist hymn, with the exclamation of "Praise God!" after the first line of the chorus.

Then there's the Squire Parson's song.  I do the old Methodist song really cheerfully and quickly with a beat on my harmonica, you can dance to it, my nephew used to dance when I played it for him when he was 3 (now he's 25). 

We want to do Sweet Beulah land, the slow one, Parson's song, in church.  Please pray I can slip in the old Methodist song and liven things up. I can do it really really fast on the harmonica and it is so cheerful.  I think it will lighten hearts.  By the way, my name is Valerie, people call me just Val.  I play harmonica now in a little bluegrass band in church.  I only know about 10 songs or so.  I broke my finger 20 years ago and couldn't play guitar over vacation so I learned harmonica, 20 years ago.  I've kind of gotten away from playing the guitar now and just really only play harmonica in public.  Maybe that's a good thing cuz I type all day at work.   One of the players in our band is Kip H. and he was in the ICU this past winter for 6 weeks with a VP shunt problem.  He still has the shunt.  He plays banjo. Pastor leads singing, is a wonderful loud tenor, so good, plays guitar.  Dale H. plays guitar too.  There is a guy in my apt. complex who came to church once and may come back, he's black, plays a lot of blues.  He likes to play lead, his name is Avery, and his girlfriend, Heather (she happens to be white), is in jail right now for credit card stealing, but Heather is a believer.  She just sort of ooopsed.  Anyway, please pray for Avery and Heather to get married if it is the Lord's will and for Avery maybe to play with our band in some sort of capacity at church.  Ours is an all white Southern Baptist church, we need a little soul.  I'm from Detroit originallhy and grew up listening to CKLW from Canada and Diana Ross and the Supremes and the Temptations, and even though I am white, I can croon just like Mahalia Jackson, scares the heck out of some white people like it used to scare my mother.  I used to be Episcopalian but I am a born again Mennonite-Baptist, went overseas to Haiti as a Mennonite missionary-secretary for a year in 1988-89. 

God Bless, thanks for your prayers.  My pastor's name is Chad, his wife's name is Angela.

The first anniversary of my mother's passing was Feb 10th, this past Sunday, but I was determined to attend church regardless of my sadness.  Lo and behold, a soloist got up and sang my mom's very favorite song:  Sweet Beulah Land.  I am still in shock. I really feel like it was her message to me to say "I'm here in Sweet Beulah Land and you should see it!"

In Loving Memory of Dorothy Mae Jones Gillis of Sturgis, Ms. born unto this earth Feb. 15, 1906 passed on to Beulah Land June 24, 2008. She received what she wanted in life, to not have to bury any of her eleven children and to not be a burden on her family. She never was, as she lived by herself until the end and never would have been, what ever the Lord may have allowed.
Three of her Great Grand Children sang this song in her celebration of life service. You know, I have heard this saying so many times, and I have been to a lot of funerals, but, this was the first true celebration of life I've ever been to. Praise God and sweet Jesus - watch that Glory Train roll!
God Bless you Maw-Maw, I'll see you when I get to Beulah Land.

Here it is 2008 and because of this posting, I finally have at least the words for Dwelling in Beulah Land by C. Austin Miles. I can now search for a CD with this old hymn on it. I remember it from the Dutch Reformed church I grew up in in NJ.

Thank you! Carol in Alaska

Yes, I like this one, too.   I think it was first published in 1911.

DWELLING IN BEULAH LAND    (1911)
      W & M By C Austin Miles

1.  Far away the noise of strife upon my ear is falling;
    Then I know the sins of earth beset on every hand:
    Doubt and fear and things of earth in vain to me are calling
    None of these shall remove me from Beulah Land.

CHORUS:
I'm living on the mountain, underneath a cloudless sky;(praise God)
I'm drinking at the fountain that never shall run dry;
Oh yes! I'm feasting on the manna from a bountiful supply,
For I am dwelling in Beulah Land.

2.  Viewing here the works of God, I sink in contemplation;
    Hearing now His blessed voice, I see the way He planned:
    Dwelling in the Spirit here I learn of full salvation;
    Gladly will I tarry in Beulah Land.

3. Let the stormy breezes blow, their cry cannot alarm me;
I am safely sheltered here, protected by God's hand.
Here the sun is always shining, here there's naught can harm me.
I am safe forever in Beulah Land.

4. Viewing here the works of God, I sink in contemplation.
Hearing now His blessèd voice, I see the way He planned.
Dwelling in the Spirit here I learn of full salvation.
Gladly I will tarry in Beulah Land.

I have a South African gospel CD from the group "Joyous Celebration" and this is their version. It's beautiful, just beautiful.

There is a land so sweet and free,
And all the joy will soon be mine,
There is a shining light so bright,
There is no dying over there.

Refrain:
O Beulah Land! Sweet Beulah Land!
Upon thy heights I long to stand,
And view the radiant jasper sea,
And mansions fair, prepared for me,
And find on that eternal shore
My heaven my home, forever more.

I love this song.
Sweet Beulah Land

I'm kind of homesick for a country,
To which I've never been before.
No sad good-byes, will there be spoken,
For time won't matter, anymore.

Beulah Land, I'm longing for you,
And some day, on thee I'll stand.
There my home shall be eternal,
Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land.

I'm looking now across the river
Where my faith will end in sight.
There's just a few more days to labor,
Then I will take my heavenly flight.

Beulah Land, I'm longing for you,
And some day, on thee I'll stand.
There my home shall be eternal,
Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land.

There my home shall be eternal,
Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land.
Beulah Land, Beulah Land,
Beulah Land, Sweet Beulah Land.

Isaiah 62:4 You shall no longer be termed Forsaken, Nor shall your land any more be termed Desolate; But you shall be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; For the LORD delights in you, And your land shall be married.
Dwelling In Beulah Land

Far away the noise of strife upon my ear is falling.
Then I know the sins of earth beset on every hand.
Doubt and fear and things of earth in vain to me are calling.
None of these shall move me from Beulah Land.

I’m living on the mountain, underneath a cloudless sky.
I’m drinking at the fountain that never shall run dry.
O yes! I’m feasting on the manna from a bountiful supply,
For I am dwelling in Beulah Land.

Far below the storm of doubt upon the world is beating.
Sons of men in battle long the enemy withstand.
Safe am I within the castle of God’s Word retreating.
Nothing then can reach me—’tis Beulah Land.

I’m living on the mountain, underneath a cloudless sky.
I’m drinking at the fountain that never shall run dry.
O yes! I’m feasting on the manna from a bountiful supply,
For I am dwelling in Beulah Land.

Let the stormy breezes blow, their cry cannot alarm me;
I am safely sheltered here, protected by God’s hand.
Here the sun is always shining, here there’s naught can harm me.
I am safe forever in Beulah Land.

I’m living on the mountain, underneath a cloudless sky.
I’m drinking at the fountain that never shall run dry.
O yes! I’m feasting on the manna from a bountiful supply,
For I am dwelling in Beulah Land.

Viewing here the works of God, I sink in contemplation.
Hearing now His blessèd voice, I see the way He planned.
Dwelling in the Spirit here I learn of full salvation.
Gladly I will tarry in Beulah Land.

I’m living on the mountain, underneath a cloudless sky.
I’m drinking at the fountain that never shall run dry.
O yes! I’m feasting on the manna from a bountiful supply,
For I am dwelling in Beulah Land

These are just two of the many versions I have heard.

PS  We will not need keys in heaven!!
