Refrain:
Sing a-ho that I had the wings of a dove,
Sing a-ho that I had the wings of a dove,
Sing a-ho that I had the wings of a dove;
I'd fly away and be at rest.

1 Virgin Mary had one Son,
I'd fly away and be at rest.
But the Jews and Romans had Him hung.
I'd fly away and be at rest. [Refrain]

2 Zion's daughters wept and mourned,
I'd fly away and be at rest.
When their dying Savior groaned,
I'd fly away and be at rest. [Refrain]

3 Sinner-man see what a shame,
I'd fly away and be at rest.
To trample down your Savior's name.
I'd fly away and be at rest. [Refrain]
