In The Garden

I came across this video of Van Morrison singing his paean to the Holy Trinity from the No Guru album. “Raglan Road” is another winner, probably listed in the column to the left of the viideo.

  1. Van Morrison says

    The streets are always wet with rain
    After a summer shower when I saw you standin’
    In the garden in the garden wet with rain

    You wiped the teardrops from your eye in sorrow
    As we watched the petals fall down to the ground
    And as I sat beside you I felt the
    Great sadness that day in the garden

    And then one day you came back home
    You were a creature all in rapture
    You had the key to your soul
    And you did open that day you came back to the garden

    The olden summer breeze was blowin’ on your face
    The light of God was shinin’ on your countenance divine
    And you were a violet colour as you
    Sat beside your father and your mother in the garden

    The summer breeze was blowin’ on your face
    Within your violet you treasure your summery words
    And as the shiver from my neck down to my spine
    Ignited me in daylight and nature in the garden

    And you went into a trance
    Your childlike vision became so fine
    And we heard the bells inside the church
    We loved so much
    And felt the presence of the youth of
    Eternal summers in the garden

    And as it touched your cheeks so lightly
    Born again you were and blushed and we touched each other lightly
    And we felt the presence of the Christ

    And I turned to you and I said
    No Guru, no method, no teacher
    Just you and I and nature
    And the father in the garden

    No Guru, no method, no teacher
    Just you and I and nature
    And the Father and the
    Son and the Holy Ghost
    In the garden wet with rain
    No Guru, no method, no teacher
    Just you and I and nature and the holy ghost
    In the garden, in the garden, wet with rain
    No Guru, no method, no teacher
    Just you and I and nature
