Beulah land

Representative Text

1 Oh, ye dwellers in the low-lands dreary,
Why, why will ye in the valleys stay?
Leave the wilderness with marches weary,
Claim your heritage in Christ today.

Over in Beulah, over in Beulah,
Land with milk and honey flowing,
Grapes in luscious clusters growing;
Over in Beulah, over in Beulah,
Come over into Beulah land.

2 ‘Tis a glorious land, a rich possession,
Fertile fields and lofty mountain heights;
To abide in this blest habitation,
God your weary, longing soul invites. [Refrain]

3 Spies may tell you of the giants waiting,
Jericho’s with mighty tow’ring walls;
Fear ye not, before Jehovah’s power
Giants flee and crumbling cities fall. [Refrain]

4 Hasten, saith the Lord, ye are well able,
Go ye up the goodly land possess,
Scale its mountain heights, explore its valleys,
Feast within its land of plenteousness. [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
