That would have made him smile.

For he was that quiet man

Coming down the aisle.

Yes, he was a quiet man,

Who never made a fuss.

Thought he carved the altar,

And may have hung the cross.

He loved his God,

He loved his wife.

Between them all

A bond so tight.

John, one of the very first;

Yes John, a pillar of the church.

Now John and the church have gone,

But their memory still shines on.
