He Is Sailing
Jon & Vangelis Lyrics

Out of the mist into tropical splendor
With garlands of flowers
In Majestical fusion we see tonight
Onto this sacred reunion of pleasure
They row as a rhythm, ten-thousands of millions
They touch the light

King is sailing they say
King is sailing we hear
King is sailing they say
King is sailing this day of days, of days
Cocasaya Tay Toca

Drums beating faster through harder excitement
The wings bring the angels
They singing of truth that this day has come
Older than oldest religions have promised
A promise is kept on this golden reflection
His kingdom come

King is coming they sing
King is coming they know
King is coming we sing
King is coming we know, Kotao, Kotao, Kotao
All the souls he to touch
All the souls he to touch
All the souls he to touch
All the millions of souls he to touch, he to touch
Cocasaya Kotao Kotao

Heaven set sail in his ship full of light
He transcends all our love
To caress all our fears
In a moment divine
Weakest and strongest will dance in delight
All illuminous our saviour, they bringing him forth

All will sing to the night
Our true Kingdom come [Repeat x 3]

Higher, then higher, then higher, then higher, then higher

I stumbled across this track and was blown away by how it touched my soul. Listening it transports me to another plane and washed away all my worries and pain in these tough times. Purely inspirational. My only regret is that I never discovered this earlier. Is this the most perfect song ever? Love to you all from Dorset. x

Jon's voice is angelic.


One of the most beautiful songs ever composed. Anderson's vocals are so pure, and Vangelis is just superb.

Everytime I listen to this song with my big headphones on my neurons go into a trance and my heartbeat is incredible slow as I travel wherever my mind takes me.
