While I Slept I Had a Dream (Repost)


While I Slept  I Had a Dream
While I slept  I had a dream
I saw your face so clear
We were in a courtroom,
A verdict drawing near.
As I watched, you were in shock
The judge about to rule
Your cries and pleadings were ignored
I thought it was so cruel.
The judge spoke out, “You had a chance
To set the world aside,
Now the world condemns you
With it’s arrogance and pride.”
Then slowly rose your Counselor
He said, “I’ll take her place,”
“My life for hers, if she’ll consent,”
“Release her by My Grace!”
 
The judge considered long and hard
And then his gavel struck
“Done”, He said. “Take him away”
You could not believe your luck.
It wasn’t “luck,” I’ll tell you
LOVE-in-action brought
Freedom with it’s Mercy,
And your Salvation bought!
 Now you’re free, what will you do?
New life has come to stay,
Others need to hear there’s hope
Now, you show them The Way!

While I slept  I had a dream

I saw your face so clear

We were in a courtroom,

A verdict drawing near.

As I watched, you were in shock

The judge about to rule

Your cries and pleadings were ignored

I thought it was so cruel.

The judge spoke out, “You had a chance

To set the world aside,

Now the world condemns you

With it’s arrogance and pride.”

Then slowly rose your Counselor

He said, “I’ll take her place,”

“My life for hers, if she’ll consent,”

“Release her by My Grace!”

The judge considered long and hard

And then his gavel struck

“Done”, He said. “Take him away”

You could not believe your luck.

It wasn’t “luck,” I’ll tell you

LOVE-in-action brought

Freedom with it’s Mercy,

And your Salvation bought!

Now you’re free, what will you do?

New life has come to stay,

Others need to hear there’s hope

Now, you show them The Way!
