I could hear them singing Precious Mem'ries as the congregation sang a hymn for me
I saw my widowed wife tremble and cry
As my few friends passed to say their last goodbye

Now the preacher he never did say where I'd spend eternity
His sermon was pretty short and you could tell that he didn't even know me
Then I heard the strangers say why that man he just lived in the bars
And I saw my two little children pass with their hands full of flowers
I could hear them singing...

And then I awoke from my dream and realized that I wasn't dead
And I got down on my knees right there beside my bed
I said Lord now everything that I've torn down I'm gonna fill back with the love
Cause last night I had a dream a dream that finally woke me up
And now I thank the Lord above for the dream last night that woke me up
