1 The night is fast passing,
The day is at hand, day is at hand,
We’ve sighted the mountains of Beulah land,
Sweet Beulah land.

We’ll say good morning in glory,
Good morning, good morning,
We’ll say good morning in glory,
When the darkness has turned to day.

2 With harps and with trumpets
the glorified band, glorified band,
Are sounding their welcome to Beulah land,
Sweet Beulah land. [Refrain]

3 The Lamb on Mount Zion
With nail pierced hand, nail pierced hand,
Has opened the portals of Beulah land,
Sweet Beulah land. [Refrain]

4 Then sing, weary pilgrims,
You’re nearing the strand, nearing the strand,
Where loved ones await you in Beulah land,
Sweet Beulah land. [Refrain]
