I had a strange dream last night in bed
It's amazing what dreams will bring out of one's head
I was a nurse in a hospital, that much was true
And was so busy having a hundred things to do
The setting was different, the people all changed
Well, the doctors though were pretty much the same
As I went to meet my patients & opened up their doors
There in one of the beds was none other than my Lord
"Master, Jesus, how is it you are here?"
I reached up my hand to brush away my tears
I heard him say my name, He had gentle tender eyes
My heart ached for him & I sat down by his side
His wounds ran very deep though he didn't mention pain
He let me hold him close as he quietly said my name
It wasn't long before my duties heralded my away
It's not that I avoided him, I just figured he was okay
I came back near the end of shift & there he sat in bed
His wounds were healed, his smile revealed & glory shone from his head
He'd disappeared when I returned to check him once again
I didn't know what to make of this, but I felt I had sinned
It wasn't until I opened my eyes that I realized a number of things
First, the Lord is everywhere & he's in the least of human beings
Second, I can't just check in on God, He wants me at his feet
Third, if I don't follow Him, I'll be left in my own defeat
Fourth, He loves me dearly & finds me where I am
Fifth, He paid my price for sin, a sacrificial lamb
I realized my life with God was shallow to compare
To the worlds of love & happiness he longs for us to share
I'd seldom let him speak, my words so filled the air
I was the one in control of all his routine care
Now I see I had it backwards, God is in control
And I'm the patient next to him, for he came to make the sick whole
I'm grateful for his appearance in my nightly sleep
For I've much to learn & time is short & he's always so willing to teach

Reminds me of the nurses who comforted me when I was in ER. Some of them (even male) seemed like the women at the foot of the cross. The Marys - ministering with compassion. You are a blessing.
