From: Guitar Picker -
Dwelling in Beulah Land

Far away the noise of strife upon my ear is falling.
D               A             B7             E
Then I know the sins of earth beset on every hand.
A                                     D              A
Doubt and fear and things of earth in vain to me are calling.
D                   A            E7     A
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
       B7            E
That never shall run dry.
O yes! I’m feasting on the manna
       D         A
From a bountiful supply,
                        E7  A
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.


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.


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.
