Nanci Griffith


On the wings of a snow white dove

He sends his pure sweet love

A sign from abouve- a sign from above

On the wings of a dove.

When trouble surrounds us

When evil's come

The body grows weak

The spirit grows strong

When these things beset us

He doesn't forget us

He sends down his love - sends down his love

On the wings of a dove


When noah had drifted

On the flood many days

He searched for land

In various ways

Troubles he had some

But wasn't forgotten

He sent down his love - sent down his love

On the wings of a dove
