Lyrics

In A Country Churchyard - Chris De Burgh

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 honor and love in the eyes of God above

 

Now let the people sing with me

These words to life 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 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 away
