Text

Let a distant stream of music lull me,
languid as a dream,
soft as the whisper of a summer sea.

The music swells into a song,
the echoes take it up along the hills.
And the wind blows it back again,
and the wind blows it back again.

As I awaken to your presence, I can hear it in my soul.

Let a distant stream of music lull me, lull me,
languid as a dream,
soft as the whisper of a summer sea.

Lord, sing to me your joyful song,
a song without noise or notes,
a song of love beyond words, beyond words.

As I awaken to your presence, I can hear it in my soul,
I can hear it in my soul, I can hear it in my soul.

Let a distant stream of music lull me,
languid as a dream,
soft as the whisper of a summer sea.
