If Only I Could Dream

TELL ME, GOD!
that you'l let me dream,

that I'l dream of a heaven
I shall never see,

that I'l dream of a hell
that has no pain.

that I'l dream that one day
that I'l dream that I wake!

TELL ME I'L DREAM
that my mother never died!
Tell me I'l dream
there were tears in her eyes!
Tell me I'l dream
of the first light of day,
TELL ME I'L DREAM!
and I'l dream that I wake!

For in a grave!
all the rest of my time,
In a grave!
in the hell where I lie!

In a grave!
where forever I'l sleep,

I'd dream of God,

..........If only I could dream
