I had a dream last night
As I slept in my easy chair.
It’s beauty filled with light
A scent of pine in the air.
I spoke with the Son of God,
In this dream, I had in sleep.
He schooled me in the way of sod,
And the promise He worked to keep.
He told me He loves the cowhand
Tho’ they ain’t mentioned by name,
With faces and necks all tanned,
He loves us all jus’ the same.
He show me how much He loves us
By spreading his arms fingertip wide.
I pushed back my hat to see Jesus,
On the cross, exactly as He died.
