If I had wings of a dove,
Far, far away
Would I fly and hide away
To be at rest

If I could wing above,
So far on high
And be free to steal away
And be at rest

Dona nobis Domine perpetua in saecula Grant us, Lord, through the
Unending ages
Dona nobis Domine perpetua in saecula pacem Grant us, Lord, peace through the
Unending ages

If I could wing above,
So far on high
And be free to steal away
And be at rest

Dona nobis Domine pacem Lord, grant us peace
Dona nobis Domine pacem Lord, grant us peace
Dona pacem Grant (us) peace

For everything above
Across the sky
Can be free to soar on high,
And be at rest

Dona nobis Domine perpetua in saecula Grant us, Lord, through the
Unending ages
Dona nobis Domine perpetua in saecula pacem Grant us, Lord, peace through the
Unending ages

Exaudi orationem dona Domine Hear our prayer, O Lord, (and) grant
Exaudi orationem dona nobis pacem Hear our prayer and grant us peace

If I could wing above,
So far on high
And be free to steal away
And be at rest

Dona nobis Domine pacem Lord, grant us peace
Dona nobis Domine pacem Lord, grant us peace
Dona pacem Grant (us) peace

If I had wings of a dove,
Far, far away
Would I fly and hide away
To be at rest

Be at rest
Be at rest
