Oh, the lights of Magdala flicker
Dimly on the shore
Holy sailor sailing on the sea
Patiently waiting she walked quietly
To the door
Another lonely night in Galilee

Chorus:
Magdalene, don't wrap your dreams in sorrow
Save them for tomorrow if it comes
When we'll meet within the circle
Round the sun
Oh, if heaven were a lady don't you
Know you'd been the one

Through the streets of Jerusalem
You followed him once more
Holy sailor's come home from the sea
Someone somewhere's calling him
To a golden distant shore
Far from the lonely nights in Galilee

Chorus:
Magdalene, don't wrap your dreams in sorrow
Save them for tomorrow if it comes
When we'll meet within the circle
Round the sun
Oh, if heaven were a lady don't you
Know you'd been the one
