    A Dream Of Calvary
    by Roselee Irvine (c) 2006

    It was a long night, I felt I was there
    But it was only a dream, one I could
    Hardly bear.

    I was at the prison where they held
    You locked in a cell.
    I could see the pain on your face,
    It hurt, I could tell.

    Your legs were locked in the clamps
    They put there.
    I knew how helpless you must have
    Felt, beyond compare.
    But you knew the worse was to come,
    They were not through.
    In the morning when the sun comes up,
    My Lord! they would crucify you.

    Morning came and my dream was not
    Over yet...
    Because I saw them make you walk a
    Path I will never forget.

    They placed a cross upon your
    Back I could see it was heavy too.
    Oh, how my heart cried out, Jesus I
    Wanted so to help you.

    So I followed along that path, right along
    By your side.
    The tears of my heart broken, could not
    Be denied.

    The smell of your fresh blood from the
    Wounds they put there,
    Made my heart break even more, it's
    Pain more than I could bear.

    Finally on the Hill they now call Calvary,
    Is the saddest part of all.
    They drove the nails in your hands with,
    Hammer and mall.

    They hung you up on that cruel cross,
    I realized then your love for me.
    Willing to die, naked upon that
    Cross made from a tree.

    But the story did not end, before my
    Dream was through...
    I saw you rise again, and now
    Each day I can walk with you.
