Death Is Only A Dream
I. "Sadly we sing, and with tremulous breath,
As we stand by the mystical stream,
In the valley by the dark river of death,
And yet there's no more than a dream.
Only a dream! Only a dream!
Of glory beyond the dark stream.
How peaceful the slumber,
How happy the waking,
For death is only a dream.
II. Why should we weep when the weary ones rest,
In the bosom of Jesus Supreme,
And the mansions of glory prepared for the blessed,
For death is no more than a dream.
III. Naught in the river the sanction of Paul,
Though it frightfully dismal may seem,
In the arms of our Saviour no ill can befall,
They'll find it no more than a dream.
