I Had a Dream Last Night

Language: English



[2003]
Testo e musica di Dan Oakenhead

"This song arose from a dream, in which all people of the world grieved at the same time for their own suffering, and each other's suffering --- a moment, which, should it but happen, would bring about astonishing movement toward world peace." - Dan Oakenhead
I had a dream last night
all of the nations
all friend and foe
everyone was there
a whole world congregation
everyone was crying
just weepin' and wailin'
for everyone's despair

I saw water rise up, river of tears go rollin' by
I rode in a boat down to the soul in every eye

There were songs of hope
an easing of anger
every question was answered
in my dream last night

I saw water rise up, river of tears go rollin' by
I rode in a boat down to the soul in every eye

All the downhearted
all of the clowns
everyone between them
they all came around
in my dream last night
there was light for every nation
a whole world congregation
every heart goin' home.
