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)

Isaiah 62:4 says "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 Jehova delights in you, / And your land will be married." The word Beulah stands for "Married" in this verse.

Lord, no longer forsaken nor desolate, but we are called "My delight is in you," we are called "Married."

Self, I do not believe your lies, I am in another realm, my mingled spirit, where I am in full satisfaction with my Lord.

Amen! Christ is our Land! Here we find rest, enjoyment, peace, joy, everything! Let's dwell live in the spirit and enjoy this Land!


Isaiah Tor

This hymn grants to us not merely the atmosphere of the heavenlies in Christ, but also the reality of a life lived on the earth yet in full organic union with our Bridegroom, Christ Jesus. The applicability of this hymn lies not in the apparent security noted in verses 1-3, but rather in the security that is the context of being in Christ to enjoy Him in one spirit with Him, as revealed in the chorus. The focus of this hymn in all its poetic utterances relates to being in Christ, abiding in Him, tarrying in Him, "married" to Him and thereby enjoying Him in spirit to the uttermost degree even whilst on this earth. Beulah relates not to earthly pleasures, but rather to being securely dwelling in spirit, enjoying Him to the degree that qualifies us as His Bride in present reality, that all that He is becomes our present, continual enjoyment in adversity.

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.
