Well, I’m tired and so weary, but I must go along;
Till the Lord comes and calls me away, oh, yes;
Well, the morning is bright, and the Lamb is the light;
And the night is as fair as the day, oh, yes.
There the flowers will be blooming, and the grass will be green;
And the skies will be clear and serene, oh, yes;
Well, the sun ever beams, in this valley of dreams;
And no clouds there will ever be seen, oh, yes.
Well the bear will be gentle, and the wolf will be tame;
And the lion shall lay down by the lamb, oh, yes;
Well, the beast from the wild, shall be led by a little child;
And I’ll be changed from this creature that I am, oh, yes!
There will be peace in the valley for me some day;
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord, I pray;
There’ll be no sadness, no sorrow, no trouble I’ll see;
There will be peace in the valley for me.
