Oh Dreamer
(For a wedding)

Words adapted by Mindy Jostyn & Jacob Brackman

Music: traditional Irish melody

O dreamer, leave your dreams for joyful waking
O captive, rise and sing, for you are free
Now Love is here and dawn is gently breaking
To lead you out of dark captivity

Love comes to bless you on its wings of healing
To banish pain, to wash all tears away
Love comes anew, consoling and revealing
Love comes to join our hearts as one today

Love comes to give you joy for desolation
Beauty for ashes of the vanished years
For every tear, to bring full compensation
To give you confidence for all your fears

Love comes to call the dumb to blissful singing
The deaf to hear, the blinded eyes to see
Now in our hearts, the bells of hope are ringing
O captive, rise, for Love has set you free
