featuring the Cypress Studio Singers
“It had been a particularly hot dry year in 2002, and wild fires were raging across much of the western US. The political scene felt equally troubling and out-of-control to me. It was as if the whole world was on fire. In the midst of all this unrest, I began to have dreams of rain.” Jan Garrett.

LYRICS

I dreamed of rain, and the rains came
Soft and easy, sweet and clear
I dreamed of rain, and the rains came, 
and peace spread over the land

I dreamed of summer, and the winds changed
And the green was easy, and the rivers ran clear
I dreamed of summer, and the winds changed, 
and peace spread over the land

And the flowers bloom in the desert,
And the air is fresh and clear
I dreamed of rain, and the rains came, 
and peace spread over the land

I dreamed of freedom, and the moon rose
And the way was easy, and the path was clear
I dreamed of freedom, and the moon rose, 
and peace spread over the land

And the guardian stars are shining
And the night is bright and clear
I dreamed of freedom, and the moon rose, 
and peace spread over the land

I dreamed of heaven, and the earth sang
And the sound was easy, and the song was clear
I dreamed of heaven, and the earth sang, 
and peace spread over the land

And the ancient pain is forgotten
And the father’s debts are clear
I dreamed of heaven, and the earth sang, 
and peace spread over the land
