1 There’s a dream that I dream, of my Savior divine,
And I know that my dream will come true;
At the morn, in the night, comes the vision of light,
With a promise eternally new.

Chorus:
O this wonderful dream is a secret of grace,
And I would this secret you knew;
For I dream that at last I shall look on His face,
And I know that my dream will come true.

2 There is sweet compensation for heartache and loss
In the hope that is given to me;
I shall quickly forget how the road was beset,
When the King in His beauty I see. [Chorus]

3 It will still be my stay when the fashion's of earth
In the mist are dissolving away;
For the passage of death will be only a breath—
But a breath, and my dream will come true. [Chorus]
