Full Text

1 I am walking today in the sweet Beulah land,
I have crossed to the glory side,
I am washed in the blood, and my soul is made white,
And I know I am sanctified.

Refrain:
Glory, Glory to God,
My heart now is cleansed from sin,
I’ve abandoned myself to the Holy Ghost,
And His fullness abides within.

2 I am now going on to explore Beulah land,
‘Tis the gift of my Lord to me;
I am tasting its joys, I am walking in light,
And the face of my Savior see. [Refrain]

3 I have found a sweet peace that the world cannot know,
As I walk by my Savior’s side,
I am kept by His pow’r, I am led by His hand,
And I’ll ever with Him abide. [Refrain]

4 Oh, the sweetness of love that enraptures my soul,
For communion with Christ I know!
I am happy in Him, and today thro’ my soul
Living streams of salvation flow. [Refrain]
