When I was a child
Life pulsed with awe.
Adults were gods
With hidden flaws.
But I lived to see my dreams go under,
All my hopes be caught and torn asunder.

I had a dream life shattered
A design life scattered.

Soon I tried to transfer
My love to people I'd meet.
I believed it no great feat
To know who my friends were.
I bought into the promises they made.
And was betrayed.

I had a dream life shattered
A design life scattered.

So many times trust
Turned to dust
Thrown into my eyes,
I knew love would turn to lies.

I had a dream life shattered
A design life scattered.

I trusted no one as a friend
'Til things proved out in the end.
So when God came to lift the latch
I looked for the catch, in vain.

I had a dream life shattered
A design life scattered.

Hate-God set me up with lies,
Painted my fear with alibis,
Told me that it would be wise
To learn to compromise.

I had a dream life shattered
A design life scattered.

Then God exchanged my feeble sight,
His deep for my shallow part like
The dark hides from the piercing light.
The Word alive in Jesus' blade
Cut a cross my shadow heart like
The sun annihilates the shade.

Then I looked inside to find what God had seen -
The image of my backward looking dream.

Victory's complete for the redeemed.
