My only Angel brought me from the sea
And bore me to an island bright and fair.
I searched and sought to find her there with me
But never could I find her tender care.
No more left to drown on dark’ning water,
I set to build an altar on the beach.
In vain I’d hoped she’d see the shells I brought her
But no one came, she seemed just out of reach.
I cried “My love, please come and stay awhile.
“I’ll make a castle from this foreign land.”
There was no answer, I was sure in exile.
She’d gone, and left me stranded on the strand.
But hope had stayed, and from the sky she came;
My only Angel, calling out my name.
