Little dove with broken wing
Why you're not quite pristine?
Fly away I might have said
That made you hang low your head

I hold you dove with broken wing
And still a peace you can bring
Nestle you close and feel Iím freed
That I have done some noble deed

Why you dove with broken wing
Not wander to some tyrant king
You look at me with charcoal eyes
I'll claim that you cannot despise

Why you dove with broken wing
Do not cry from awful sting
Could it be that youíre too proud?
Fly and find a weeping cloud

Iím sad you dove have broken wing
I only wish Iíd heard you sing
For your guidance I might beseech
But you have died and cannot teach

Oh, my Dove I hear the wind
Whisper words from mighty men
That you are broken yet you live
Please my Lord wilt thou forgive
