The readiness of Joseph, something to sing about…..
“I dreamed this dream, magicians bold,
Do tell me what it meant?”
And out of all the wisest men,
There was no answer sent.
Now Joseph never lost his faith,
The Lord stayed by him true;
Two years unjustly imprisoned,-
No bitterness he knew.
When the need for Joseph came,
Mentally he was ready.
Oh, what a lesson for mankind!
His spirit had kept steady.
At last he came out of prison,
Was shaved and clothed afresh.
He knew that God was his Father:
They saw him as just flesh.
“I dreamed a dream O mortal man
And I wondered what it means?
There is no one here can help me,
Can you interpret dreams?”
And there he stood before Pharoah,
Did he feel strange or odd?
His reply came straight from the heart:
“My standing is of God.”
And with the Spirit Joseph spoke;
The dream it was revealed:
For with God’s wisdom all was clear,
And harmony was sealed.
Oh Holy Spirit wash me through,
True humbleness please find:
In patient trust, when I let go,
I see unfolding Mind.
Oh Let me learn from Joseph’s love,
With understanding true,
To be awake is not to dream,
It is to be with You.
