Miles (1868-1946), 1911Key signature: B flat major (2 flats)Time signature: 4/4Meter: 220.127.116.11. with RefrainPublic Domain1. Far away the noise of strife upon my ear is falling; Then I know the sins of earth beset on ev’ry hand; Doubt and fear and things of earth in vain to me are calling; None of these shall move me from Beulah Land.Refrain: I’m living on the mountain, underneath a cloudless sky, I’m drinking at the fountain that never shall run dry; Oh, yes! I’m feasting on the manna from a bountiful supply, For I am dwelling in Beulah Land.2. Far below the storm of doubt upon the world is beating, Sons of men in battle long the enemy withstand; Safe am I within the castle of God’s Word retreating; Nothing then can reach me— ’tis Beulah Land.3. Let the stormy breezes blow, their cry cannot alarm me; I am safely sheltered here, protected by God’s hand; Here the sun is always shining, here there’s naught can harm me; I am safe forever in Beulah Land.4. Viewing here the works of God, I sink in contemplation; Hearing now His blessed voice, I see the way He planned; Dwelling in the Spirit, here I learn of full salvation; Gladly will I tarry in Beulah Land.
