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.

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.

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. (Chorus)

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. (Chorus)

4 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 I will tarry in Beulah Land. (Chorus)
