This album is a collection of 13 classic worship songs written by Chris Bowater between 1976 and 1990. Included are songs like "He Who Dwells" and "Jesus Stand Among Us" as well as adaptations of traditional hymns like "How Sweet The Name Of Jesus Sounds" and "Drop Thy Still Dews". It's all done in classic MOR style where the melodies never overshadow the lyrics and I found its gentle style quite uplifting to listen to. As the album title suggests Chris is a dreamer for the Kingdom and this album will introduce his older music to a new generation at a time when many of his dreams for the Church are beginning to be fulfilled.
