Written by Squire Parsons years ago, I have sung this song so many times, and even have it recorded on one of our albums (Set Free). But it wasn’t until we were in the process of “crossing over” and going into our Menorah Music Ministry, that the truth of Beulah Land was revealed to me! I am grateful for Pete’s blog entry here on this beautiful song… finally, somebody says it!
The song keeps running through my head and is a beautiful lilting melody.
I’m kind of homesick for a country
To which I’ve never been before.
No sad goodbyes will there be spoken
for time won’t matter anymore.
Beulah Land, I’m longing for you
and some day on thee I’ll stand.
There my home shall be eternal.
Beulah Land — Sweet Beulah Land
I’m looking now across the river
where my faith will end in sight.
There’s just a few more days to labor.
Then I will take my heavenly flight.
The lyrics need some mild adjustment, though. Isaiah tells us exactly where Beulah Land is, and a rapturous flight is not necessary unless El Al is really that good.
