Dall'ultimo album "Comedians And Angels"
"How beautiful upon the mountain,
Are the steps of those who walk in peace!
How beautiful upon the mountain,
Are the steps of those who walk in peace!"

'Cross the bridge at Selma you came marching side by side,
In your eyes, a new world on the way.
Peace was in your hearts and justice would not be denied,
You sang "We Shall Overcome someday."
God knows the courage you possessed,
And Isaiah said it best:

"How beautiful upon the mountain,
Are the steps of those who walk in peace!
How beautiful upon the mountain,
Are the steps of those who walk in peace!"

Marching 'round the White House,
Marching 'round the Pentagon,
Marching 'round the mighty missile plants,
Speaking truth to power, singing peace to Babylon,
Asking us, Why not give peace a chance?
God knows the courage you possessed,
And Isaiah said it best:

"How beautiful upon the mountain,
Are the steps of those who walk in peace!
How beautiful upon the mountain,
Are the steps of those who walk in peace!"

Now the generations that have joined you on this road,
Look to you with power in their eyes.
Showing you the torch has passed as they pick up the load,
Showing you their eyes are on the prize.
God knows the courage they possess,
And Isaiah said it best:

"How beautiful upon the mountain,
Are the steps of those who walk in peace!
How beautiful upon the mountain,
Are the steps of those who walk in peace!"
