Steal A Kiss From Mary's Lips

lyrics

Mary, Mary, in the yard
Mother Mary, standing guard
Through the the trees the sunlight slips
And lightly kisses Mary's lips
Through the the trees the sunlight slips
To steal a kiss from Mary's lips.

He waited in rapture
He watched her in wonder
Step from the mouth of the church
Into the dying day
No sirens, no warnings
No voice in the thunder
Prepared his heart for
What was coming his way.

Mary, Mary, in the yard
Mother Mary, standing guard
Through the the trees the sunlight slips
And lightly kisses Mary's lips
Through the the trees the sunlight slips
To steal a kiss from Mary's lips.

As sure as a new day,
The first blush of green on a shock of blue
As pure as the bells from the steeple 'cross town
Love comes for you
As pure as the trill of the chickadee
As sure as the sparrow flies to the hand of Mystery
That makes all it falls on sing!
Oh! Love comes for you!
Get ready, get ready…

Mary, Mary, in the yard
Mother Mary, standing guard
Through the the trees the sunlight slips
And lightly kisses Mary's lips
Through the the trees the sunlight slips
To steal a kiss from Mary's lips.

The birds sing, the sun dips
To steal a kiss from Mary's lips

Yeah, through the trees the sun slips
And steals a kiss from Mary's lips.
