    Dante's Prayer
    Loreena McKennitt
    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...
    Please, remember me...

    This glancing life is like a morning star
    A setting sun, or rolling waves at sea
    A gentle breeze or lightning in a storm
    A dancing dream of all eternity
    The sand was shimmering in the morning light
    And dancing off the dunes so far away
    The night held music so sweet, so long
    And there we lay until the break of day
    We woke that morning at the onward call
    Our camels bridled up, our howdahs full
    The sun was rising in the eastern sky
    Just as we set out to the desert's cry
    Calling, yearning, pulling, home to you
    The tents grew smaller as we rode away
    On earth that tells of many passing days
    The months of peace and all the years of war
    The lives of love and all the lives of fears
    Calling, yearning, pulling, home to you
    We crossed the river beds all etched in stone
    And up the mighty mountains ever known
    Beyond the valleys in the searing heat
    Until we reached the caravanserai
    Calling, yearning, pulling, home to you
    Calling, yearning, pulling, home to you
    What is this life that pulls me far away
    What is that home where we cannot reside
    What is that quest that pulls me onward
    My heart is full when you are by my side
    Calling, yearning, pulling, home to you

    That's her big unit-shifter, I believe, from St John of the Cross. Lovely pure voice. She's really coming from Celtic new age pagan mysticism, no?
