"Hinba" from Open Sky
by Iona
Released in 2000 Track: 7 / Time: 4:58

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
