Stand In The Rain

I had a strange dream the night before last
That rainclouds were gathering and blackening fast
The air grew heavy and the winds grew strong
Everything was in chaos. Everything went wrong.
The rain started and seemed it would never end
Such a multitude of rain the heavens did send
As it filled up the streets and gutters so full
I felt in my heart a fearful desire take hold
I took a timid step from beneath my dry place
I waded into the puddles, the rain on my face
With arms open wide I looked up to the sky
I let the water soak me and watched my fears die
I awoke in a start and rolled over with ease
And decided my phantom was digesting peas
'Til the next day while driving so far
A song on the radio filled up my car
"Stand in the rain. You stand your ground
Stand up even when it's all crashing down
You stand through the pain. You won't drown
And one day what is lost all can be found"
A shiver shot from my toes to my spine
As I heard the words that really were mine
I thought of my nightmare the evening before
And realized that God had meant so much more
So though I fear that by standing I'll fall
I'll do my best to rise and give it my all
