All the diamonds in this world
That mean anything to me
Are conjured up by wind and sunlight
Sparkling on the sea 

I ran aground in a harbour town
Lost the taste for being free
Thank God He sent some gull-chased ship
To carry me to sea 

Two thousand years and half a world away
Dying trees still grow greener when you pray 

Silver scales flash bright and fade
In reeds along the shore
Like a pearl in sea of liquid jade
His ship comes shining
Like a crystal swan in a sky of suns
His ship comes shining
