That Night at the Table




I knew from that night at the table
As we talked and we pondered and whiled
That you’d brought from the shell 
Someone I once knew well 
And I smiled, and I smiled, and I smile



Hours went by like they were moments
Days went by like they were years
Remember I said how I knew we would wed
Soon my dear, soon my dear, soon my dear


Oh, what a beautiful thing
That let’s your heart soar without strings
Oh, what a beautiful thing
What a beautiful thing
What a beautiful thing

Like ships straying far from their anchors
We found ourselves lost in the tide
Unable to stand, I held tight to your hand
And I cried, and I cried, and I cried



Two cords don’t hold well in winter
But three are not easily frayed 
So I looked above to my God who is love
And I prayed, and I prayed, and I prayed


Oh, what a beautiful thing
That let’s your heart soar without strings
Oh, what a beautiful thing
What a beautiful thing
What a beautiful thing

Darling, our hearts they did conquer
We found every promise they hid
Remember you said how you knew we would wed
Well we did yes we did yes we did



I knew from that night at the table
That we might have some storms to get through
But still I knew that always I’d love you
And I do, yes I do, yes I do
Yes I do, yes I do, yes I do
Yes I do, yes I do, yes I do
