A thousand jewels in soft array

A thousand jewels in soft array brush moonlit waters in sweet ballet

A thousand jewels in soft array brush moonlit waters in sweet ballet vibrant lights from green to gold

A thousand jewels in soft array brush moonlit waters in sweet ballet vibrant lights from green to gold enchant the river of London old

Through the night, St Paul's commands

Through the night, St Paul's commands a ship of white, atop the lands

Through the night, St Paul's commands a ship of white, atop the lands casting awe from bridge to hall

Through the night, St Paul's commands a ship of white, atop the lands casting awe from bridge to hall splashing life in silver thrall

Blackfriars Bridge in calm repose

Blackfriars Bridge in calm repose Oxo Tower glows like a rose

Blackfriars Bridge in calm repose Oxo Tower glows like a rose twisting lamps climb from the stands

Blackfriars Bridge in calm repose Oxo Tower glows like a rose twisting lamps climb from the stands Thames Clippers sail in silky bands

By the wall, a busker plays

By the wall, a busker plays pennies drop with smiles of praise

By the wall, a busker plays pennies drop with smiles of praise melodies lilt through softest air

By the wall, a busker plays pennies drop with smiles of praise melodies lilt through softest air and our fingers lace with timid care

We stop beneath the gem-lit trees

We stop beneath the gem-lit trees with thumping hearts and weakened knees

We stop beneath the gem-lit trees with thumping hearts and weakened knees lips lightly touch in loving test

We stop beneath the gem-lit trees with thumping hearts and weakened knees lips lightly touch in loving test then in relief, our foreheads rest
