217. O Beulah Land

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.

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 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. [Chorus]

3 A sweet perfume upon the breeze
Is borne from ever-vernal trees,
And flow'rs, that never-fading grow
Where stream 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]
