Story

We've heard a few variations of this traditional song; the droning quality of this version seemed to lend itself to dulcimer and some open-fifth harmony.

Lyrics

When the curtains of night are pinned back by the stars

And the beautiful moon sweeps the sky

Dew drops from heaven are kissing the rose

It's then that my memory flies

 

Well, upon the wings of a beautiful dove

I'll hasten this message of cheer

I’ll bring you a kiss of affection and say

I’ll remember you, Love, in my prayers

 

Now the angels of heaven are guarding the good

As God has ordained them to do

In answer to prayers that I offered to Him

I know there’s one waiting for you

 

Now go where you will on land or on sea

I’ll share all your sorrows and cares

At night as I kneel by my bedside to pray

I’ll remember you, Love, in my prayers
