Well she swept through the church
Like a sweet Sunday prayer
While the choir sang Son of Heaven
And the groom just walked on air
I was killing time with Jesus
When the wedding bells began
And I saw the most beautiful woman
Getting married to a handsome man
And she walked like a mystery
And she passed like summer rain
And she said "I do" like an angel
But I never knew her name
Oh the congregation gathered
But in darkness I remained
In love with the bride of a handsome man
But I never knew her name
In the shadow of the holy
Oh I heard my tell-tale heart
Whisper words that never reached her
As her vows were made at last
Oh the preacher with his blessing
Pronounced them man and wife
And I saw the most beautiful woman
Make a promise to be kept for life
