The church bell tolls, the sun rises and chimes the castle.
With a song in my heart I take to the wing and fly
Along the river where the salmon dance, cross the Lovers Leap
Where the spray fountains into the air as the river hits the rocks.
The sun glorious upon my back, the water sparkles
Like a rainbow, all colours and none.
The earth alive with flowers, the wind scatters the clouds,
Ruffles my feathers as I climb Jacob’s Ladder to the Apostles:
The earth’s beauty below, Heaven’s majesty above.
