Civil Wars – From This Valley lyrics

Oh, the desert dreams of a river
That will run down to the sea
Like my heart longs for an ocean
To wash down over me.

Oh won't you take me from this valley
To that mountain high above
Oh I will pray, pray, pray 'til I see your smiling face.
I will pray (pray, pray) to the one I love.

Oh, the outcast dreams of acceptance
Just to find pure love's embrace.
Like an orphan longs for it's mother.
Oh may you hold me in your grace.

Oh won't you take me from this valley
To that mountain high above
Oh I will pray, pray, pray 'til I see your smiling face.

I will pray (pray, pray) to the one I love.

[Bridge]

Oh the caged bird dreams of a strong wind
That will float beneath her wings
Like a voice longs for a melody.
Oh, Jesus carry me!

Oh won't you take me from this valley
To that mountain high above
Oh I will pray, pray, pray 'til I see your smiling face.
I will pray (pray, pray) to the one I love.

Oh I will pray, pray, pray 'til I see your smiling face.
I will pray (pray, pray) to the one I love.
