After the 2007 shooting rampage at Virginia Tech Mary Alice heard on the radio the pastor of a church near the college being asked what he could preach on the next Sunday. He answered with a quote from Psalm 30: " Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning." This inspired Mary Alice to write this song for the service she was leading the following Sunday at the Guilford (VT) Community Church, UCC. The singers are, from left to right: Cora Neilsen Kelly, Mary Alice Amidon, Zara Bode (Stefan's wife), Suzannah Park (soloist), Emily Miller, Jeff Fellinger, Gideon Crevoshay, Stefan Amidon (Peter & Mary Alice's younger son) Avery Book and Peter Amidon.
