When the Dream never dies

14 May

Deep in my heart was an ember of longing
Kept warm by the flame of desire
A dream held in secret I yearned to hold openly
Fanned by my hope into fire
It burned to such heat I could touch it no more
So I put it away and then closed up the door
Forever extinguishing all that would keep it alive
But the dream never died
The Lord has done this for me, he has looked on me kindly
He has heard all my cries
He has given me back what I laid at His feet
It must be God, when the dream never dies
Isn’t it just like the Lord to invite me
To put all my dreams in His hands
Forever releasing the grip that once held them
Forever surrendering my plans?
And then when He’s certain it’s not born of men
He calls for the fire to rekindle again
And He asks me to know in my heart what’s not seen with my eyes
So the dream never dies.

– from the song When the Dream Never Dies from musical Child of the Promise
