1 O what blessings Jesus has for me!
O what treasures in His word I see!
Faith triumphant and salvation free,
Since I’ve been in Beulah Land.

Refrain:
I’m in the land of corn and wine,
Hallelujah, what a joy is mine!
Feasting today with my Lord divine,
I am now in Beulah Land.

2 He has led me from the shadows drear,
I am living in the sunlight clear;
Gone from me is ev’ry doubt and fear,
I am now in Beulah Land. [Refrain]

3 Daily feasting on His truth Divine,
Pardon, cleansing at His cross are mine;
In my life His love doth brightly shine,
I am now in Beulah Land. [Refrain]
