As a dove spreads her wings ready to take off for flight,
I pray my faith in you grows like a grape vine on a lattice so white.
Though I know you're my all from morning 'till night.
Nothing will rattle me while you're in my sight.
Keep me close.
Whisper in my ear.
Tell me all the good things I've wanted to hear.
Guide my steps through all the years.
Bring me closer to home.
The yearning in my spirit.
The prayers I make.
I know that if I do not awake,
God, you'll carry me home.
