Once I Lay Fettered In Sins Gloomy Priso


Once I lay fettered in sin’s gloomy prison,
But Jesus unbound me, and I have arisen;
O glory to God, I’m under the blood,
And I’ll praise Him over the land of Beulah!

Refrain:
Beulah, Beulah, glorious land of Beulah!
O glory to God, I’m under the blood,
And I’ll praise Him over the land of Beulah!

But how do you know that your sins are forgiven?
Why, Jesus has sent me the witness from Heaven;
O glory to God, I’m under the blood,
And I’ll praise Him over the land of Beulah! [Refrain]

This wondrous salvation, I’ve got it,
And, glory to Jesus, I’ll sing it, I’ll shout it;
O glory to God, I’m under the blood,
And I’ll praise Him over the land of Beulah! [Refrain]

He’s healed all my limping, and slipping, and doubting,
And set me to leaping, and dancing, and shouting;
O glory to God, I’m under the blood,
And I’ll praise Him over the land of Beulah! [Refrain]

Some people are doubtful of sanctification,
But Jesus will spread it all over creation;
O glory to God, I’m under the blood,
And I’ll praise Him over the land of Beulah! [Refrain]

But can He from inward pollution deliver?
Yes, glory to Jesus, forever and ever;
O glory to God, I’m under the blood,
And I’ll praise Him over the land of Beulah! [Refrain]

This wondrous salvation, O how is it given?
Why, Jesus will send it right on you from Heaven;
O glory to God, I’m under the blood,
And I’ll praise Him over the land of Beulah! [Refrain]

O soon, fellow pilgrims, we’ll cross o’er the river,
And dwell in the presence of Jesus forever;
O glory to God, I’m under the blood,
And I’ll praise Him over the land of Beulah! [Refrain]
