As I slept, I had a dream.
The sky was different, or so it seemed.
The trumpet call was blasted aloud.
Then I saw my Savior on a cloud
For this day we had been told to watch and wait.
But many realized their fate one moment too late.
Those who knew Him started to raise.
Those who didn't went into a craze.
Some of my church friends stayed on the ground
As I looked around me, I was surprised who I found.
"Lord," I said, "why so few in this land?"
He said, "Trust me," and took my hand.
