I woke up this morning
And none of the news was good.
Death machines were rumbling across the ground where Jesus stood.
And the man on my tv told me
It had always been this way
And there was nothing that no one could do or say

And I almost listened to him
And I almost lost my mind
Then I regained my senses again
And looked into my heart to find

That I believe that one fine day
All the children of Abraham
Will lie down their swords forever
In Jerusalem

Maybe I'm only dreaming
Or maybe I'm just a fool
But I don't remember learning how to hate in Sunday school
But somewhere along the way I strayed
And I never looked back again
But I sometimes find some comfort now and then

Then the storm comes rumbling in
And I can't lay me down
And the drums they're drumming again
And I can't stand the sound

And believe that one fine day
The lion and the lamb
Will lie down in peace togetherin Jerusalem

And there'll be no barricades
And there'll be no barbed wire walls
And we can wash all the blood from our hands
And the hatred from our souls

And I believe that one fine day
The lion and the lamb
Will lie down in peace together
In Jerusalem
