Watch this beautiful live performance of top country singers: Alison Krauss, Jamey Johnson, & Melanie Cannon of the popular southern gospel song Sweet Beulah Land at the prestigious Grand Ole Opre stage. This gospel song was written and composed by Squire Parsons in 1973 and released in 1979. It became the number one Southern Gospel single and received the Singing News Fan Awards for Song of the Year (as popularized by Squire Parsons and The Kingsmen) in 1981. It became an anthem for other gospel singers like The Gaithers Choir, Casting Crowns, Caroll Roberson, and many others!

The message of this song is of a beautiful promise for every Christian believer and follower of Jesus Christ. Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress gives the following definition of the term Land of Beulah: “the peaceful land in which the pilgrim awaits the call to the Celestial City.”

Sweet Beulah Land Lyrics

By Squire Parsons

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 (Beulah Land) I’m longing for you (I’m longing for you)
And some day (And some day) on thee I’ll stand (Someday we will stand)
There my home (There my home) shall be eternal (Eternal)
Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land

I’m looking now, just across the river
To where my faith, shall end in sight (Shall end in sight)
There’s just a few more days to labor.
Then I will take my heavenly flight.

Beulah Land (Beulah Land) I’m longing for you (I’m longing for you)
And some day (And some day) on thee I’ll stand (Someday we will stand)
There my home (There my home) shall be eternal
Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land
Beulah Land, oh it’s Beulah Land
Oh Beulah Land, sweet Beulah Land
