I tell you of a girl her husband was a soldier
Gone to war in some strange country far away
No word had come to her
But the rumour of great battles fought
And dying in their thousands and the world full of fear
As the day would turn to evening she would a pure white candle
And place it in a window bright from where it could be seen
As she placed it in the window softly? And?
She said let this burning candle be a beacon
Let joy and innocence prevail
Let joy and innocence prevail
Believe that luck will never fail
Let joy and innocence prevail
And one night, asleep, she dreamed she saw her husband
Fall in a great white cavilry charge
And waking in tears she saw the candle burning in the window
She still had hope
And through the window a man in the distance
But has he came closer, she saw he was a stranger
The stranger said I bring a message from a general
Your captain has been wounded, his life hangs by a thread
He calls out your name and he wishes you to come to him
But the journey is a hard road and you may be afraid
And she laughed and said no road could be too hard for I am fearless
A captain and a husband I have gained this bright new day
And she said with all her heart she would fly to be beside hik
And her love would heal his wounds restore him to her
Let joy and innocence prevail
Let joy and innocence prevail
Believe that luck will never fail
Let joy and innocence prevail
Let joy and innocence prevail
Let joy and innocence prevail
Believe that luck will never fail
Let joy and innocence prevail
Let joy and innocence prevail
