The Miracle Dreams by Susie M. Best
That night when in the Judean skies
the mystic star dispensed its light,
a blind man moved in his sleep –
and dreamed that he had sight.
That night when shepherds heard the song
of hosts angelic choiring near,
a deaf man stirred in slumber’s spell –
and dreamed that he could hear!
That night when in the cattle stall
slept Child and mother cheek by jowl,
a cripple turned his twisted limbs –
and dreamed that he was whole.
That night when o’er the newborn Babe
the tender Mary rose to lean,
a loathsome leper smiled in sleep –
and dreamed that he was clean.
That night when to the mother’s breast
the little King was held secure,
a harlot slept a happy sleep –
and dreamed that she was pure!
That night when in the manger lay
the Sanctified who came to save,
a man moved in the sleep of death –
and dreamed there was no grave.
