The Dove

 



The bird is an obvious symbol for liberation; a breaking of the shackles that bind us to the sorrows of life. Wings are the vehicle by which we might transcend this world, and attain new vistas, in new dimensions of existence. In time, the bird most often chosen to represent this longing came to be a white dove. White is the color of all light together, all the colors of the rainbow singing in one sublime symphony of Celestial Glory. White is undivided and undistorted by the colors of nature. It is purity, serenity, Divinity.

Early people must have looked skyward and wondered: "All things here are pain and suffering; all things here are challenge and strife; all things here are change and flow. Yet the stars do not change; if there is a quiet place of sanctuary from the violence of the world, surely it is there. If only I could be there, flying on the wind like a bird, up into the starry womb of night. I know I could find safety and refuge there. I know I could find peace..."

The ubiquity of this image in the modern world clearly demonstrates the enduring power of this symbol in the human imagination.











On the wings of a snow white dove
He sends His pure sweet love
A sign from above
On the wings of dove.

When troubles surround us
When evils come
The body grows weak
The spirit grows numb.

When these things beset us
He doesn't forget us
He sends down His love
On the wings of a dove.

On the wings of a snow white dove
He sends His pure sweet love
A sign from above
On the wings of dove.

When Noah had drifted
On the flood many days
He searched for land
In various ways.

Troubles he had some
But wasn't forgotten
He sent him His love
On the wings of a dove.

On the wings of a snow white dove
He sent His pure sweet love
A sign from above
On the wings of dove...




 

 

"On The Wings of a Dove"

 

 

 





Life is changed, not taken away.
To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.
