Green Cathedral

Words by Gordon Johnstone and music by Carl Hahn


I know a green cathedral, a shadowed forest shrine,
Where leaves in love join hands above and arch your prayer and mine;

Within its cool depths sacred, the priestly cedar sighs,
And the fir and pine lift arms divine unto the pure blue skies.

In my dear green cathedral there is a flowered seat,
And choir loft in branched croft, where songs of bird hymns sweet;

And I like to dream at evening, when the stars its arches light,
That my Lord and God tread its hallowed sod in the cool calm peace of night.


Used as wedding processional in 20th anniversary handfasting  / vow renewals.
