There will come a time; we no longer feel despair and sorrow. All that is left are happiness, contentment, and peace. These, at the very end of our journey, would be the gift of God to us. Certainly, it’s all that we wanted after we have done our obligations on earth.

To be able to be accepted by God and into his kingdom, we must make our most significant contributions. Be a good Samaritan, elude from sins, and praise his name. Believe that God can bring us to salvation and prayers can lead us to redemption. With this, pin your ears back to “Peace in the Valley” for it will bring you closer to God. Let Elvis Presley help you contemplate how wonderful God is.

Elvis Presley’s “Peace in the Valley”…

Presley’s rendition marked a significant and changing event in history. It was when he performed “Peace in the Valley” on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1957. It made history since Presley helped 250,000 refugees fleeing Hungary. He dedicated his performance to the refugees. The total amount of earnings of US$49.5 million were distributed to the families in Vienna and London.

Peace in the Valley…

The hymn merely talks  about how God can bring peace to us. That there won’t be any miseries to devour us, instead, at the very last part of our journey, God is there waiting for us.

Thomas A. Dorsey was the songwriter behind the words and lyrics of “Peace in the Valley.” It was initially for Mahalia Jackson. It was introduced to the people by Red Foley in 1951. Since then, it became a song for religious groups and churches.

The Lyrics…

Oh well, I’m tired and so weary

But I must go alone

Till the lord comes and calls, calls me away, oh yes

Well the morning’s so bright

And the lamp is alight

And the night, night is as black as the sea, oh yes

There will be peace in the valley for me, someday

Will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray

There’ll be no sadness, no sorrow

No trouble, trouble I see

There will be peace in the valley for me, for me

Well the bear will be gentle

And the wolves will be tame

The lion shall lay down by the lamb, oh yes

And the beasts from the wild

Shall be lit by a child

And I’ll be changed, changed from this creature that I am, oh yes
