1 Praise God, I’ve found a safe retreat
Where I can rest my weary feet;
Here joys abound on every hand,—
‘Tis Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land.

O Beulah Land, forever blest,
The land of joy, and peace, and rest;
No more till death I’ll leave thy strand,
My tent is pitched in Beulah Land.

2 From here yon heaven can be seen,
Tho’ Jordan’s torrent flows between;
But till I cross, at God’s command,
I’ll stay right here in Beulah Land. [Refrain]

3 I know that in that city fair
Are many loved ones waiting there,
But till I’m called to join that band,
I’ll never leave sweet Beulah Land. [Refrain]

4 Christ lives with me in this retreat
And our communion here is sweet;
He’ll lead me, if I hold His hand,
To heaven’s gate in Beulah Land. [Refrain]

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856. His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill. However, Mr. Oatman only serves as a local preacher. For many years he was engaged with his father in the mercantile business at Lumberton… Go to person page >
