There was a dream that I once had
Which made my memories so glad
Long time ago when I was young
And all my hopes were yet unsung
The energy still kept its charm
And laughter held no great alarm.
Tis time for freedom and for joy
When all life’s pleasures are employed
Oh, would that God was always there
To hear our ever grateful prayer
And see us through until the end
He is our true and constant friend !
