    One of my all-time favorite songs -- Has sort of a mystical, haunting quality to it (about 6 min).

    Dante's Prayer Lyrics
    Artist: Loreena McKennitt (Buy Loreena McKennitt CDs)
    Album: The Book Of Secrets

    When the dark wood fell before me
    And all the paths were overgrown
    When the priests of pride say there is no other way
    I tilled the sorrows of stone

    I did not believe because I could not see
    Though you came to me in the night
    When the dawn seemed forever lost
    You showed me your love in the light of the stars

    Cast your eyes on the ocean
    Cast your soul to the sea
    When the dark night seems endless
    Please remember me

    Then the mountain rose before me
    By the deep well of desire
    From the fountain of forgiveness
    Beyond the ice and the fire

    Cast your eyes on the ocean
    Cast your soul to the sea
    When the dark night seems endless
    Please remember me

    Though we share this humble path, alone
    How fragile is the heart
    Oh give these clay feet wings to fly
    To touch the face of the stars

    Breathe life into this feeble heart
    Lift this mortal veil of fear
    Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears
    We'll rise above these earthly cares

    Cast your eyes on the ocean
    Cast your soul to the sea
    When the dark night seems endless
    Please remember me...

    In case somebody would appreciate this song and video [which I always find uplifting and soothing], thought I would bump this thread up today... :)
