  • I woke up this morning, and none of the news was good
    Death machines were rumblin' 'cross the ground where Jesus stood
    And the man on my TV told me that it had always been that way
    And there was nothing anyone could do or say

    And I almost listened to him
    Yeah, I almost lost my mind
    And I regained my senses again
    Looked into my heart to find

    That I believe that one fine day all the children of Abraham
    Will lay down their swords forever in Jerusalem

    Well maybe I'm only dreamin' and maybe I'm just a fool
    But I don't remember learnin' how to hate in Sunday school
    Somewhere along the way I strayed and I never looked back again
    But I still find some comfort now and then

    Then the storm comes rumblin' in
    And I can't lay me down
    And the drums are drummin' again
    And I can't stand the sound

    But I believe there'll come a day when the lion and the lamb
    Will lie down in peace together in Jerusalem

    And there'll be no barricades then
    There'll be no wire or walls
    And we can wash all this blood from our hands
    And all this hatred from our souls

    And I believe that on that day all the children of Abraham
    Will lay down their swords forever in Jerusalem Writer/s: Traditional
