aisle – walkway
I’ll – contraction of “I will”
isle – island
alter – to change
altar – raised centre of worship

Misunderstanding we alter
There’s always peace in the altar
Together with you in the aisle
Even with challenge on the way
Priorities we always weigh
You will be there for me and I’ll
Be there for you through thick and thin
Make our home with silver and tin
Happiness we have in our isle*
