(Arthur Q. Smith)

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 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 garments 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
It was no dream he turned my way
And then 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 hands that bled for me
I touched the hem of his garments that fell round him there
My life, my heart, I gave my soul, was in his care…
