Van Morrison sings “In the Garden…”

 

The fields are always wet with rain
After a summer shower
When I saw you
standin’
Standin’ in the garden
In the garden

Wet with
rain

You wiped the teardrops from your eye in sorrow
And we watched
the petals fall down to the ground
And as I sat beside you I felt
the
Great sadness that day

In the garden

And then one day you
came back home
You were a creature all in rapture
You had the key to your
soul
And you did open
That day you came back

To the
garden

The olden summer breeze was blowin’ gainst your
face

Alright

The light of God was shinin’ on your countenance
divine
And you were a violet colour as you
Sat beside your father and your
mother

In the garden

The summer breeze was blowin’ on your
face
Within your violet you treasure your summery words
And as the shiver
from my neck down to my spine
Ignited me in daylight and nature in the
garden

And you went into a trance
Your childlike vision became so
fine
And we heard the bells within the church
We loved so much
And felt
the presence of the youth of eternal summers
In the
garden

Alright

And as it touched your cheeks so lightly
Born
again you were and blushed
And we touched each other lightly
And we felt the presence of the Christ within our hearts

In the garden

And I
turned to you and I said

No guru, no method, no teacher
Just you and I
and nature
And the Father in the garden

Listen

No guru, no
method, no teacher
Just you and I and nature
And the Father and the Son
and the Holy Ghost
In the garden

Wet with rain

No Guru, no
method, no teacher
Just you and I and nature and the Father AND THE SON and
the Holy Ghost
In that garden, in the garden, wet with rain

Yeah.
Alright.

No Guru, no method, no teacher
Just you and I and nature and
the father In the garden
