lyrics

I dreamed of Jesus Christ last night
Alive as you or me.
“But you’ve been dead two thousand years.”
“I rose again,” said he.
“I rose again,” said he.

The powers that be condemned you
And they nailed you to a tree
And rolled a stone across the tomb:
“I rose again,” said he.
“I rose again,” said he.

“From Pakistan to Chile,
And from China to Iran,
Where poor folk hear the Gospel news,”
He said, “that’s where I am.”
He said, “that’s where I am.”

“Whoever feeds the hungry
And sets the captive free
And shines a light into the dark,”
He said, “that’s where I’ll be.”
He said, “that’s where I’ll be.”

And standing there as large as life
And smiling like a friend,
He said, “I’ll always be with you
Until the very end.
Until the very end.”

I dreamed of Jesus Christ last night
Alive as you or me.
“But you’ve been dead two thousand years.”
“I rose again,” said he.
“I rose again,” said he.
