Erik wrote: "The theme is similar to the Nick's song New Morning. Note also that the line 'There'll be no sadness, no sorrow' also is in New Morning. Finally, the bright day versus black night antithesis is also the same.

Well, I'm tired and so weary but I must go along,
Till the Lord comes and calls, calls me away, oh, yes,
And the mornin's so bright and the lamb is the light,
And the night, night is as black as the sea, oh, yes.

CHORUS


There will be peace in the valley for me, some day,
There will be peace in the valley for me, dear Lord, I pray.
There'll be no sadness, no sorrow, no trouble I see,
There will be peace in the valley for me.

The bear will be gentle and the wolf will be tame,
And the lion shall lie down with the lamb, that's what it
Says, And the beasts from the wild will be led by a child,
And I will be changed, changed from this creature that I am, oh, yes.

CHORUS
