"Wings of a Dove' is a country song written by Bob Ferguson in 1958. "Wings of a Dove" was most popular when it was recorded by Ferlin Husky in 1960. The Ferlin Husky recording went to number one on the country charts for 10 nonconsecutive weeks.It was Ferlin Husky's third and final number one on the country chart, spending nine months on the chart. "Wings of a Dove" was successful on the pop charts, as well, peaking at number 12 on the Hot 100.In 1987, Broadcast Music Incorporated awarded Ferguson with the "million air" plays for the "Wings of a Dove".

The song alludes to several passages from the Christian Bible about doves sent by the Lord, including a verse about God sending Noah a dove during the flood in Genesis 8:6-12. Dolly Parton's and Porter Wagner's cover versions include a verse not in the original, referring to another passage about a dove in Matthew 3:16 where "After his baptism, as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and settling on him."

Ferlin Husky - Wings Of A Dove Lyrics

 

On the wings of a snow-white dove

He sends His pure sweet love

A sign from above (sign from above)

On the wings of a dove (wings of a dove)

When troubles surround us

when evils come

The body grows weak (body grows weak)

The spirit grows numb (spirit grows numb)

When these things beset us, 

He doesn't forget us

He sends down His love (sends down His love)

On the wings of a dove (wings of a dove)

On the wings of a snow-white dove

He sends His pure sweet love

A sign from above (sign from above)

On the wings of a dove (wings of a dove)

When Noah had drifted 

on the flood many days

He searched for land (He searched for land)

In various ways (various ways)

Troubles, he had some 

but wasn't forgotten

He sent him His love (sent him His love)

On the wings of a dove (wings of a dove)

On the wings of a snow-white dove

He sends His pure sweet love

A sign from above (sign from above)

On the wings of a dove (wings of a dove)

On the wings of a snow-white dove

He sends His pure sweet love

A sign from above (sign from above)

On the wings of a dove (wings of a dove)

On the wings of a dove (wings of a dove)

On the wings of a dove (wings of a dove)

On the wings of a dove (wings of a dove)
