lyrics

There’s two little doves on the window sill
One’s just sittin’ there very still
The other’s got a little twig in his bill
There’s two little doves on the window sill.

Now there is a little nest
A circle of sticks around mama’s breast
She’s brooding all day ‘cause she knows what’s best;
There is no life without faithfulness.

Let’s be quiet and pull the drapes
Don’t wanna scare the little bird away
Don’t press your face to the window pane
We love the dove and we want her to stay.

Now there is a little white egg
Perfect as the first egg ever laid
gleaming like the last snow ball
when all the other snow has gone

Now the sun is beating down
She’s panting in her coat of down
And when the peepers sing at night
She’s still there blinking in the soft lamplight.

That dove that brought hope long ago
Scouring the sea for some green below
We wanna know when and we wanna know how
We’re still peering off of Noah’s bow.
Now there’s a stream of miracles
Commonplace, but heaven-sent
So hush now baby don’t be upset
The world ain’t been abandoned yet!
