I Dreamed I Was In CCM Heaven

I dreamed I was there in CCM heaven
Oh what a beautiful sight

Last night I dreamed I went to CCM heaven. And you know who greeted
me at the gate? The ole rebel-philosopher himself, Larry Norman. He said
to me, he said “Gabe, the Big Boss of the singers up here has asked me to
kinda show you around. Now, over yonder are a couple of your ole compadres.”

My, was I glad to see them, Keith Green and the
ragamuffin blue liberal Rich Mullins.

Oh what a beautiful sight

He introduced me to Chuck Smith, Sr. and he showed me the Hall of Fame with
all the gold guitars and wristbands hanging on the walls. Then he said,
“Son, step over this way, there are two more of your friends I know
you’ll want to see, they’re waitin’ for you.” There they were standin’
side by side and smilin’ at me–Bob McKenzie and Mark Heard.

I met all the stars in CCM heaven
Oh what a star-studded night

Then I asked him who else do you expect in the next, uh, say a hundred
years? He handed me a large book covered with star dust. Gabe called it
the Big Tally Book. In it were many names and each name was branded in
pure gold. I began to read some of them as I turned the pages: Chuck Girard,
Matthew Ward, Kurt Kaiser, Pat Terry, Randy Matthews, Billy Ray Hearn, Andrae Crouch, Barry McGuire, John Fischer, Bill Gothard

Whaaaatttt???

Bill Gothard??? Oh, well, that’s when I woke up, and I’m sorry I did, because

I dreamed I was there in CCM heaven

Oh what a beautiful sight.
