VERSE 1:

AND I HAD A DREAM_____________
IN WHICH I SAW MY GRANDMA
AND I SAW HER SMILE________
AS SHE GENTLY TOOK MY HAND
AS SHE GENTLY TOOK MY HAND


VERSE 2:

AND I HEARD HER SOFTLY WHISPER______
A SPECIAL BABY WAS BORN TODAY
ALLELUIA, COME AND PRAY WITH ME______
AND SING AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE
OH, AROUND YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE




VERSE 3:

AND HOW I'VE MISSED MY GRANDMA________
SINCE THE DAY LONG AGO THAT SHE DIED
AND I REMEMBER HOW I CRIED _____
AS A LITTLE BOY THAT I ONCE WAS
AS THE LITTLE BOY THAT I ONCE WAS



VERSE 4:

AND I'LL REMEMBER THAT SMILE______
IT SEEMS TO GLOW JUST FOR ME
AND SHE SAID SHE'D COME BACK________
IN MY DREAMS ON CHRISTMAS EVE
IN MY DREAMS ON CHRISTMAS EVE
