Last night I dreamt of a mourning dove
across the sea from high above, she sang a sweet hosannah
She drifted down on wave and wind lightly on her feathered limb
she brought with her the branch and hymn
to lay at my feet

I laid in the sands I held her in my hands
I wished she were mine to keep
with my wish I spoke, she flew off, I woke
I tried to sing myself back to sleep

I listened for the evening bells where the empty steeples shadow fell
for you were all I ever held
I stood inside the chapel doors I prayed to find the song adored
among the stars I was led to shore
I crawled on my knees

I laid in the sands, I wept in my hands
I wished you'd been mine to keep
with my eyes I closed another wish I spoke
that I would never wake from my sleep

Hush the sound of a rising sun
where days begin when days are done
where bluebells ring when morning comes
