If I had the cloths of heaven,
Filled with gold and silver light
I would lay them underneath your feet
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths of night
I would spread the cloths under your feet

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
No gold and silver cloths of heaven mine to give
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly, now, because you tread on my dreams
Tread on my dreams

If I were your shining bright,
Dressed in gold and silver light
Would you love me til the day I died?
If I wore the robes of heaven,
Shining with the stars of night,
Would you love me til the day I died?

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
No gold and silver cloths of heaven mine to give
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly, now, because you tread on my dreams
Tread on my dreams
Tread softly, now, because you tread on,
Tread on my dreams
