  SQUIRE  E. PARSONS WROTE "BEULAH LAND" IN 1979. 
FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS,  HIS NEW HYMN WAS NAMED "FAVORITE HYMN OF THE YEAR."

IN 1979, SQUIRE PARSONS BECAME AN ORDAINED MINISTER AT TRINITY BAPTIST, AT HIS HOME CHURCH IN
ASHVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA.
THE FIRST TIME I HEARD THIS SONG WAS AT MY GRANDDAUGHTER'S FUNERAL.  AIMEE WAS A YEAR-OLD WHEN SHE  WAS HIT BY A VEHICLE
IN HER OWN BACKYARD. 

THE POEM "PITCHER OF TEARS" WAS READ AT AIMEE'S FUNERAL.  IT IS A VERY HEALING POEM.  IT IS IN THE  "SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSONS."

MIKE PERKEY IS SINGING "BEULAH LAND." 
I'M HOMESICK FOR A CITY,
TO WHICH I'VE NEVER BEEN BEFORE.
NO SAD GOODBYES WILL EVER 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.

OH, NOW I'M LOOKING,
WELL, I'M LOOKING FOR A RIVER,
WHERE MY FAITH IS GOING TO END IN SIGHT.
OH, THERE'S JUST A FEW MORE  DAYS,
WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO LABOR,
THEN I WILL TAKE MY HEAVENLY FLIGHT!

BEULAH LAND, I'M LONGING FOR YOU,
AND SOME DAY ON THEE  I'LL STAND.
THERE MY HOME SHALL BE ETERNAL,
BEULAH LAND, SWEEY BEULAH LAND.
