In A Country Churchyard Lyrics

In a country churchyard there's a preacher with his people
Gathered all around to join a man and woman
Spring is here and turtledoves are singing from the steeple
Bees are in the flowers, growing in the graveyard
And over the hill, where the river meets the mill
A lovely girl is coming down to give her hand upon her wedding day

Dressed in simple white and wearing flowers in her hair
Music as she walks slowly to the altar
And picking up his bible then the preacher turns towards her
Will you take this man to be your wedded husband
To honour and love in the eyes of god above
Now let the people sing with me the words to live forever in your heart

Let your love shine on
For we are the stars in the sky
Let your love shine strong
Until the day you fly, fly away

Many years have fallen on that golden country morning
The graveyard's overgrown, the church lies in ruins
Ivy on the walls and ravens wheeling round above me
As I made my way towards the last remaining headstone
I fell to my knees, read the lines beneath the leaves
And suddenly it seemed to me I heard the words like singing in the trees

Let your love shine on
For we are the stars in the sky
Let your love shine strong
Until the day you fly, let your love shine on
For we are the stars in the sky
Let your love shine strong
Until the day you fly, fly away
