Lyrics

The Colours of the Saints  ( © James Fraser) 

 

A church stood tired at the end of the lane

Demolition about to begin

The foreman walked in to that sad, empty space

The colours began to flood in. 

 

That last, lonely window stood tall, proud and bright

Bedazzled him with green, blue and red.

He realised this could be his one only chance

As gently he eased out the lead. 

 

Their art has come down centuries depicting scenes of light

The dedicated men who worked with coloured glass and paints.

We stand in awe and wonder at such a fragile sight

For they have made us learn to love

The colours of the saints. 

 

He wrapped it in a blanket and took it to his home

Installed it at the top of the stairs.

Now every time he looks up, the sun is streaming in

He?s thankful for his answered prayers. 

 

Their art has come down centuries depicting scenes of light

The dedicated men who worked with coloured glass and paints.

We stand in awe and wonder at such a fragile sight

For they have made us learn to love

The colours of the saints. 

(bridge)

Their art has come down centuries depicting scenes of light

The dedicated men who worked with coloured glass and paints.

We stand in awe and wonder at such a fragile sight

For they have made us learn to love

 

The colours of the saints.
