On a night as I lay sleeping, in a dream I
Saw the shore of a distant land where/
Promise lay in wait/ And I heard the
Sound of voices of a million hungry
Souls/ Now it comes to me to lead them to the gate

But I am just a man, not worthy of this
Plan / With a strength that's not my own,
Imust rise

And I...will bear the light, ( and the
Vision leads me onward) / That
Blind....men have their sight / I'd sail a
Thousand seas to make it so

To the Kings I gave the mission, in the
Hope that they would share / In the joy
Of setting countless captives free / But
The lust for Gold and power, is luring us
Away / From a calling that began in purity

And 'm still just a man, not worthy of
This plan / With a strength that's not my
Own, I must rise

Now a tempest rages in my heart, as this
Fever furies on / Soon these islands
Promise rest and hope, my answers wait
Beyond their shore / Dream on...

Hungry eyes are standing on the sand,
They beckon us to bring the tide /
Sovereign hand must hold me now, I plead
With you / Be my soloace and my guide...by
My side

And I...will walk with you / On the
Shores of the land ofpromise / That
Blind...men see you too / I'd sail a thou-
Sand seas to make it so
