Pulling against the tide, rowing
Heart praying, thought flowing
Until the oars touch the ground of Hinba

Pushing against the eastern wind
Salt that bleeds into the skin
Looking over your shoulder to Hinba

This is where you prayed
And Heaven's light shone down
This is where you sang the angel song
Rising higher, rising higher to beyond

Morning comes in glorious light
Sea reflecting calm and bright
And the song still rises from the island

Here you came to make your fast
Prayed for mercy 'til at last
You heard the word, you waited for

This is where you prayed
And Heaven's light shone down
This is where you sang the angel song
Rising higher, rising higher to beyond

This is where you prayed
And Heaven's light shone down
This is where you sang the angel song
Rising higher, rising higher, rising higher to beyond
