I built a bridge of dreams across
From star to star,
Where all the constellations sing
And systems are.
I built of opal, amethyst, carnelian blue,
But never any of these dreams
Came true.

I built a bridge of dreams across
From door to door,
Where neighbors toiled and babies romped
And struggles were.
I built of courage, love and hope, my heart the crew,
And every dream I fashioned thus
Came true.

God, train my soul to build and build,
With joy and might,
Until, at last, my spans shall reach
Above the night.
Love be my tools, my right of way,
My chart of schemes,
And you, O God! the Engineer
Of all my Dreams.
