Oh, the lights of Magdala flicker dimly on the shore
Holy sailor sailing on the sea
Patiently waiting she walks quietly to the door
Another lonely night in Galilee

Magdalene, don't wrap your dreams in sorrow
Save them for tomorrow if it comes
When we'll meet within a circle round the sun
If heaven were a lady don't you know you'd have been the one

To the streets of Jerusalem you followed him once more
Your holy sailor's come home from the sea
The somewhere someone’s calling him to a distant golden shore
Far from the lonely nights in Galilee

Magdalene, don't wrap your dreams in sorrow
Save them for tomorrow if it comes
When we'll meet within a circle round the sun
If heaven were a lady I know you'd been the one
