There's a love I hold dear and it shines through each year
And it makes things seem different somehow
It's for better or worse, it's for people who thirst
For a love that burns brighter right now

And it shines on and on till all sadness is gone
And if children had wings I would sing them this song
With a smile on my face and a tear in my eye
Everything will be fine by and by

There were things that were said, there were things that were done
And a wife cannot stand too much pain
And what I thought was best, couldn't please her much less
But my love still goes on, that don't change

And it shines on and on till all sadness is gone
And if children had wings I would sing them this song
With a smile on my lips and a tear in my eye
Everything will be fine by and by

And it shines on and on till all sadness is gone
And if children had wings I would sing them this song
With a smile on my face and a tear in my eye
Everything will be fine by and by
