Silver for the Bairn

 

Lyrics

Isn't it sad now? What a joy to behold
Yet what a cross to bear
The moment you've waited your whole life for
Did he ever say he loved you?
I'm sure he always has
How do you think he must feel now?
He needs you more than ever, poor sad lonely man
He's the silver for the bairn

Now they're lining up for honour
And there's silver for the bairn
Yet how can they begin to feel
The extent of your despair
And the golden hearts smile lovingly
On the gift that all prey for
And Jimmy Allen's got a new suit on
And there's silver for the bairn

So here's your life's curtain opened wide
Will you let the love come pouring in
As the shadows run and hide
And turn each ray of sunshine into hope
For you'll reap the golden rewards
Of the riches that you sow

She could have been a champion
With the sporting ambitions of youth
And champion all the causes
Of freedom, love and truth
And live out all the dreams
That you could never fulfill
A hope for the love-lorn, a cure for the ill
And silver for the bairn

So here's your life's curtain opened wide
Will you let the love come pouring in
As the shadows run and hide
And turn each ray of sunshine into hope
For you'll reap the golden rewards
Of the riches that you sow 


So here's your life's curtain opened wide
Will you let the love come pouring out
As you look upon this child
One for silver, yours to hold
For from the smallest, weakest seed
A garden can be grown

And when all hope has faded
She'll bring silver for the bairn
