[Chorus]
Come to me dreams of heaven!
My fainting spirit bear,
On your bright wings by morning giv'n
Up to celestial air,
[repeat]

[Verse One]
Away! far, far a way!
From bow'rs by tempests riven,
Fold me in blue still cloudless day,
O blessed dreams of heaven,
A way! far, far away!
from bow'rs by the tempest riven.
Fold me in blue still cloudless day,
O blessed dreams,
O blessed dreams of heav'n,
O blessed dreams of heav'n,
O blessed dreams of heav'n.

[Verse Two]
Come but for one brief hour,
Sweet dreams and yet again,
O'er burning thought and mem'ry show'r
Your soft effacing rain.
[repeat]

[Verse Three]
Waft me where gales divine,
With dark clouds ne'er have striven
Where living founts forever shine.
[repeat]

[Repeat 7x]
O blessed dreams of heav'n
