After The Fire - Pilgrim Lyrics

Narrator
One day as I lay down to rest

Keep the light in your eye
That is the way of your escape
That is the way you must ... fly

With the one that I used to serve
Then the "Valley of the Shadow
of Death" it hung over me

Then I found a friend, oh what a friend
We travelled together
