178. Beulah Land

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

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, forevermore!

2 My Saviour comes and walks with me,
And sweet communion here have we;
He gently leads me by his hand,
For this is heaven’s borderland. [Chorus]

3 A sweet perfume upon the breeze
Is borne from ever vernal trees,
And flowers, that never-fading grow
Where streams of life forever flow. [Chorus]

4 The zephyrs seem to float to me
Sweet sounds of heaven’s melody,
As angels with the white-robed throng
Join in the sweet redemption song. [Chorus]
