Words by George Cooper. Music by George C. Edwards.

In the little village church a youthful couple stood,
And the words were spoke that made them man and wife;
Oh. the wedding bells they rang, and the birds of spring time sang,
While they vowed to love each other all their life;
As they from the altar came, and stood beside the porch,
All the clouds had passed away, the sun shone bright;
And the husband whispered there, to the wife so sweet and fair,
These words in fondest accent of delight:

Happy is the bride that the sun shines on;
All the gloomy clouds now are past and gone;
Oh, still remember, dear, when sorrow hovers near,
Happy is the bride that the sun shines on.

By the fireside warm and bright, a couple old and gray,
With a smile of sweet contentment, linger still;
Though the years have taken flight, yet they seem to hear to-night
Those sweet wedding bells that echoed o'er the hill.
Near the end of life are they, but just us dear to-day
Are the Wives they plighted in their youth so fair,
And they talk of olden limes, and the merry wedding chimes,
While once again the old man whispers there: - Chorus.
