Beulah Land

Words by E. P. Stiles Music by John R. Sweney

"I've reached the land of corn and wine,
And all its riches freely mine.

First sung at Ocean Grove, New Jersey, at a great gathering of Methodists, this hymn at once became very popular. It has been sung in every land where the name of Christ is known. The secretary of the Young Men's Christian Association at Plymouth, England, wrote me a beautiful story of a young lady, who sang it on her dying bed as she passed into the land that is fairer than day.

I sang this favorite song over the dead body of my friend, Mr. Sweney, at the church of which he was a leading member, in West Chester, Pennsylvania, on the day of his burial.
