Ornaments of Gold LyricsEdit


♪♫Ornaments of Gold Lyrics♫♪

Silver couches to recline upon And ornaments of gold Silver moonbeams dance in fountains Below shining citadels Surrounded by silver gates ascending silver stairs Eureka on angelic prayer wafts in and scents the air With ornaments of gold To warm my soul from the growing cold Ornaments of gold

We can drink from silver vessels We can feed from silver bowls Then I'll give you gilded treasures Annointed by intoxicating oils Drenched in riches unimaginable Your splendour drips with jewels that are so beautiful

And ornaments of gold Warm my soul from the growing cold

Adorable rewardable you From head to toe I'd love to cover you And smother you in ornaments of gold

In honeydew I'd love to cover you Oh lover do bring

Ornaments of gold Protect our hearts from this cruel world Ornaments of gold
