wysiwyg Celebratory Folkie Lenten Music (55* d) ADD: WINGS OF A DOVE 11 Apr 07

From our Green Songbook (Gospel Favorites Volume One). Got it right here at Mudcat, after hearing the Dolly Parton version. I think it's the third verse that's Mudcatter bbc's. I think she has it as v. 4, but I moved it to be v. 3.



Bob Ferguson, edited by and one verse by "bbc"

On the wings of a snow-white dove,
He sends His pure, sweet love--
Like stars from above...
On the wings of a dove.

1. When Noah had drifted on the flood many days,
He searched for land in various ways.
Well the raven returned, with no place to land.
Then God sent His love... on the wings of a dove.

2. When Jesus went down to the Jordan that day,
He was baptized by John (in the usual way).
And when it was done, God blessed His Son.
He sent Him His love... on the wings of a dove.

3. Counselor, Teacher... Comforter, Friend;
Our seal of salvation; guarantee till life's end,
It's the Gift of the Father-- the Holy Spirit of God--
Sent to each who believes...on the wings of a dove.

4. So when troubles surround us or sorrows come,
Tho the body grows weak and the spirit grows numb.
Yet when evils beset us, we are never alone.
Gods sends us His love... on the wings of a dove.
