Billy Gilman - Peaceable Kingdom Lyrics


The leopard with a harmless kid lay down
And not one savage beast was seen to frown
The wolf did with the lamb kin dwell in peace
His grim carnivorous nature there did cease
The lion with the fatling on did move
And a little child was leading them in love

Long ago there was a young painter
Who had a dream that every creature came
And stood assembled at his side
And he painted the sight that had sweetened his night
Fully one hundred times before he died

A kid and lion and a snake and a child
Wide-eyed and formal and smiln' like the sun had stopped
And time had ceased to move
And th ewolf andthe lamb came and ate from his hand
And a man-child was leading them in love

C H O R U S
Oh, my friend, have you seen all the lines and the spaces
The colors that the young painter sees
In the peacealble kingdom that shines in the faces of people from more gentle times than these

I find myself adrift these days
An endless maze of ends and ways
And the world just seems so crazy to me here
But look away, back or forward from today
To the visions of either fools or seers

Such a beautiful place full of joy, full of grace
It was bathed in a saintly yellow light
Too unlearned to know that such things can't be so
He could only believe that they might

C H O R U S
