That Beautiful October Day

Looking back,
On the memories of
That beautiful October day
When we pledged our love

All the world was ours
Beneath the harvest sky
Hand and hand we walked
Together, you and I 

 Hopes and dreams were laid
Upon the wings of prayer 
Through the ages of time
God has gladly led us there

The journey sometimes uphill
Against bitter winds and rain
Together we’ve faced it all
Our tears were not in vain

 Love can conquer all
And tame the raging sea
 Nothing can ever compare 
When true love is meant to be

We’ve looked to God above
Been sanctified by his grace
Daily walking in his presence
Our hearts still happily embrace

A ring’s symbol is never ending
A circle of love shines new
We thank God more each day
 Vows are still fresh as morning dew

As the future rushes towards us
And hair turns silver gray
It will always feel like October
We cherish each golden day

Looking back
We’ve made it, you and I 
For forty-six cherished years 
Since that beautiful, October sky
