Song Lyric Sunday – Peace

Standard

Song Lyric Sunday – Peace

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/22/17

***

Today, for Song Lyric Sunday, Helen has asked us to find peace. Thanks, Helen!

There’s lots of songs about peace. I’ve featured so  many on here, I thought I’d go in a different genre this time. This time it is Gospel. It’s one of my favorites that I’ve heard lots of times over the years.

“Peace in the Valley”, was written in 1937, by Thomas A. Dorsey. It was originally written for Mahalia Jackson, but many more artists have covered it in their own way. This version, by Willie Nelson, is one I really enjoyed listening to. This is his performance at Live at Farm Aid in 1994.

I’m tired and weary
But I must go along
Till the Lord comes to call me away, oh Lord

Well, the morning is bright
And the Lamb is the Light
And the night is as fair as the day

Oh, there will be peace in the valley for me, for me
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray
No more sadness, no more sadness, no more trouble there’ll be
There will be peace in the valley for me, for me

Well, the bear will be gentle
The wolf will be tame
And the lion shall lay down with the lamb, oh yes

And the [Incomprehensible] from the wild
Will be led by a child
I’ll be changed from this creature that I am

Oh, there will be peace in the valley for me some day
There will be peace in the valley for me, I pray
No more sadness, no more sadness, no more trouble there’ll be
There will be peace in the valley for me, for me
