Last night I dreamed an angel came
He took my hand, he called my name
He bade me look the other way
I saw a man, I heard him say.

He said if I'd be lifted up
I'll draw all men to me
He turned and then I saw
The nail scared hands that bled for me.

(I touched the hem of his garment
That fell round him there)
My life, my heart I gave my soul
Was in his care.

--- Instrumental ---

When I awoke my heart beat sore
And in the dark I saw a glow
It was no dream he turned my way
Again I heard my Saviour say.

He said if I'd be lifted up
I'll draw all men to me
He turned and then I saw
The nail scared hands that bled for me.

(I touched the hem of his garment
That fell round him there)
My life, my heart I gave my soul
Was in his care...
