I found some shade beneath a willow tree
I fell asleep and started dreaming
That everything created here on earth all had voices singing
Every rock and every blade of grass even the ivy that was clinging
Every leaf and every drop of rain all had voices singing.
It brought the angels down in my dream so clear
Then the Lord sat down so that he could hear
The sea and waves were rushing to the shore
With the joy that they were bringing
A sound so perfect that it made me cry to hear their voices singing.
And as the Lord sat down the angels hovered near
But they made no sound so that he could hear
I couldn't help but want to add my own to the praises that were ringing
Then over all the world there fell a hush to hear my one voice singing
Gloria I heard voices singing
I heard voices singing...
