It's been since February since you posted this but if you are still looking I have Sweet Beulah land sheet music in the key of D if you are still looking for it. I can email a pdf version to you from firstname.lastname@example.org.
I sent a pdf file to your email and the file is attached on this website on a reply to Terry earlier in this thread. I can email the file to others also upon request.
I searched for some background on the word Beulah. I have seen it as the name for many people I have met but I've also noticed it on some churches and cemeteries. I thought since it was such a common biblical word, it must have been the name of somebody famous in the bible. Further research showed that the word Beulah exists once in the bible (you have to have an old bible) and the nearest translation appears to be that it is an adjective that means married. Since I was expecting to find it used as a person's name and there may be some uncertainty or lost meaning in the translation, Beulah is a word that for me still has some wonder and mystery.
I left the Isaiah part out on purpose to see if any one would ask for the book and chapter. Thanks for looking and finding a url that provides more information. Some time ago I found myself on a bible website and found the site had search functions, so I searched for the word Beulah. I had to define the correct bible in the search criteria before Beulah could be found. Many of the new bibles use the word married or some other phrase. It's just one of those things that makes me think!!
Dave, Im sorry if I spoke out of turn regarding the bible verse. I was so excited when I found some information about it. I am also eagerly awaiting more sound clips from Rick Long. Then I will be choosing my tenor psaltery! Im like a little kid on Christmas morning!
I was wondering how long I should leave it open without an answer, so I'm glad you found it and made it known. It worked for you as I intended it to work in that it appears you had fun searching for it.
