Jacob's Dream - Alison Krauss

In the spring of 1856 with the snow still on the ground

 

Two little boys were lost in the mountains above the town

The father went out hunting, the boys had stayed behind

 

While mother tended to her chores they wandered from her side

 

The two had gone to follow him and lost their way instead

 

By dusk the boys had not been found and fear had turned to dread

 

Two hundred men had gathered there to comb the mountain side

 

The fires were built on the highest peak in hopes they'd see the light

 

Ohh, mommy and daddy why can't you hear our cries?

The day is almost over, soon it will be night

 

We're so cold and hungry and our feet are tired and sore

 

We promise not to stray again from our cabin door

 

Now, Jacob Diverd woke one night from a strange and eerie dream

He saw a path between two hills near a dark and swollen stream

 

He told his wife he saw the boys huddled close beside a log

 

For two more nights the dream returned this vision sent from God

 

Ohh, mommy and daddy why can't you hear our cries?

 

The day is almost over, soon it will be night

 

We're so cold and hungry and our feet are tired and sore

 

We promise not to stray again from our cabin door

 

A thousand men had searched in vain the west side of pop's creek

 

But Jacob's wife knew of this place and said to travel east

 

With a guide to take him there, Jacob came upon the scene

 

And found the boys cold and still beneath the old birch tree

Ohh, mommy and daddy, look past the tears you cry?

We're both up in heaven now, God is
