Lindisfarne

Oh, Lindisfarne with your coast so fair
I crave your breeze to flow through my hair 
As you absolve all my worries and cares
Oh, Lindisfarne with your coast so fair 

Oh, old Holy Isle a solace for so many
I offload my woes when they're feeling heavy 
Gives me hope and peace when there isn't any 
Oh, old Holy Isle a solace for so many

Oh, Lindisfarne with your brushstroke skies
Through your beauty I'm bequeathed new eyes
From my inauthentic life you cut all ties 
Oh, Lindisfarne with your brushstroke skies

Oh, old Holy Isle you echo history
From your castle, cliffs and monastery
Through your whispered wisdom I am set free
Oh, old Holy Isle you echo history

Oh, dear Lindisfarne of sacred grace 
No one's left bereft, feeling displaced
You envelope with love; I feel embraced
Oh, dear Lindisfarne of sacred grace
