1 ‘Twas when I surrendered to Christ my all,
Listened only to His loving call;
He placed me and kept me that I need not fall,
And brought me to Beulah Land.

Refrain:
I’ve pitched my tent in Beulah
With Jesus to stay,
My nights are full with music,
With comfort the day;
And there is peace that passeth knowledge
And blessing alway,
Since I have pitched my tent in Beulah.
I’ve pitched my tent in Beulah
With Jesus to stay,
My nights are full with music,
With comfort the day;
And there is peace that passeth knowledge
And blessing alway,
Since I have pitched my tent in Beulah.

2 Besides Him no other my eyes can see,
Living daily by His grace made free;
I gladly will tell you what He is to me,
While living in Beulah Land. [Refrain]

3 I’d ever exalt Him, all else above,
Nor without Him would I care to move;
I cannot be sundered from His arms of love,
While living in Beulah Land. [Refrain]
