Joseph had a dream in the night
A dream of heaven and earth
A dream of sun, moon and stars
They greeted him in a dawn
Joseph paid a price for his dream
He was bound in yoke and chain
His legs were put in shackles
His vision kept a nation live
King had a dream of freedom at last
The dream of brotherhood
It levelled the hills and mountains
He paid the price with his life.
Gandhi had a dream for his land
The dream set tides and waves
They shook an empire and its crown
He paid a price to set a nation free.
Proclaim your dream day and night
Do not hide it in the closet
Let the tide go to the ocean’s end
Let it shake the crowns and thrones
Water the dream day and night
Make it grow high and bright
The dream may set you free at last
The price you pay will break the yoke.
Joseph is a Bible character.
King was the Civil Rights Movement leader in America
