Ferlin Husky – 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. This recording went to number 1 on the country charts for 10 nonconsecutive weeks. It was Ferlin Husky’s third and final number 1 on the country chart, spending nine months on it. “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 Wagoner’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
On the wings of a dove

When troubles surround us, when evils come
The body grows weak, the spirit grows numb
When these things beset us,he doesn’t forget us
He sends down his love
On the wings of a dove

On the wings of a snow white dove
He sends his pure sweet love
A sign from above
On the wings of a dove

When Noah had drifted on the flood many days
He searched for land in various ways
Troubles, he had some,but he wasn’t forgotten
He sent him his love
On the wings of a dove

On the wings of a snow white dove
He sends his pure sweet love
A sign from above
On the wings of a dove
When Jesus went down to, the river that day
He was baptised in the usual way
And when it was done, God blessed his son
He sent him his love
On the wings of a dove

On the wings of a snow white dove
He sends his pure sweet love
A sign from above
On the wings of a dove
On the wings of a dove
On the wings of a dove
On the wings of a dove
