Far away the noise of strife upon my ear

1
Far away the noise of strife upon my ear is falling,
Then I know the sins of earth beset on every hand;
Doubt and fear and things of earth in vain to me are calling,
  None of these shall move me from Beulah Land.
  I’m living on the mountain, underneath a cloudless sky,
I’m drinking at the fountain that never shall run dry;
O 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 is planned;
    Dwelling in the spirit, here I learn of full salvation,
  Gladly will I tarry in Beulah Land.

Beulah means Married in Hebrew (cf. Isaiah 62:4)

Born in Lakehurst, New Jersey, Miles attended Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and the University of Pennsylvania. In 1892, he abandoned his ca­reer as a phar­ma­cist and wrote his first Gos­pel song, He served as ed­i­tor and man­a­ger at the Hall-Mack pub­lish­ers for 37 years. In his own words:

"It is as a writ­er of gos­pel songs I am proud to be known, for in that way I may be of the most use to my Mas­ter, whom I serve will­ing­ly al­though not as ef­fi­cient­ly as is my de­sire." - hymntime

Miles was an amateur photographer who wrote many of his hymns in a darkroom, while waiting for the photographs to develop. - hymnpod

He also wrote the words and music for "I come to the garden alone", which tune is used for "O glorious Christ, Savior mine" #501, and which lyrics were probably the inspiration for #554 "I come to His presence afresh".

This is one of the inspirational song ever written. Its lyrics and rhythms soothes hopeless heart knowing fully well that in spite of life difficulties and uncertainties, they still have the hope that one day they will see the Lord and nothing else can move them from HIM for ever. Praise the Lord.

Beulah means married in Hebrew.

Isaiah 62:4 And it will no longer be said to you, Forsaken! Nor to your land will it be said any longer, Desolate! But you will be called, My delight is in her, And your land, Married; For Jehovah delights in you, And your land will be married.
