Last night I dreamed
An angel came
He took my hand
He called my name
He bid me look
The other way
I saw a man
I heard him say
He said if I be lifted up
I'll draw all men to me
He turned and then
I saw the nail-scared hand
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
When I awoke
My heart beat so
And in the dark
I saw a glow
This was no dream
He turned my way
Again I heard
My Saviour say
He said if I be lifted up
I'll draw all men to me
He turned and then
I saw the nail-scared hand
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
(In his care)

    I feel it is saying god is always present and jesus is always there, waiting for us to accept him and live for him in just the way he died for us
