Keeper of the Dream

The Dream has always been
To die and to live again
But to see beyond Death's portal
Had not been granted to any mortal

One came and spoke of the Dream
A King would be born it seemed
The giver of salvation and life
Taking from the world all hate and strife

Men lived and men died
Many said at last he lied
The King would never come
The Dream had died for some

Then one night so long ago
Shepherds gathered in a barn below
Not a place for the King to be
The One who holds eternity

A child was born that distant night
A star above had shown its light
They called his name Emmanuel
God among us they would tell

Time moved on and a man he was
Teaching all of God's great love
Telling men about the Dream
Beyond Death's door that none had seen

He said he was God's only son
And spoke of things that some had done
Surely that was a wicked lie
And for this he ought to die

So on a cross they nailed God's son
Many said, He's not the one
The things He told us of the Dream
Were lies and didn't mean a thing

The nights and days soon were three
From Death's firm bond Himself was free
He walked again in the morning sun
And proved to them He was the one

Again He spoke of things to be
No more pain for you and me
From our labors we will rest
For those of us who pass the test

He left the earth for Heaven above
Having shown his endless love
Remember me and all I say
I will return for you one day

Until I come do not forget
To love each other as I have said
And be a Keeper of the Dream
And be a Keeper of the Dream
