I dreamt, I sailed across the blue,
Upon the wings of an angel, true
It carried me into lands unknown
Singing tunes men do not know
I heard the softness of his voice
Until I felt drowsed and woke,
“Oh! Where was I?” I do not know
It was a beauteous land, I know
There was no misery, no tears a flowed
The merry faces were all aglow
“Was this … a paradise?”
I do not know.
Just then a gentle hand did rustle
A turn I took … beside the hem
Facing me there stood someone
I thought he was my childhood friend
So far away… so far away
So far away from me and then…
Was this a dream come true today?
Or was it just another day?
For when I woke, I lay in thought
What a miracle God had wrought!
