Wedding Song

Standard

Frequently, when I put the kids to bed, they want me to sing song. Lots of times we sing together. Tonight, Austin’s request was “Sing the wedding song, mommy.” A few years ago Robert sang the Stephen Curtis Chapman song that I sang at our wedding and it was affectionately renamed “The Wedding Song.” Know why I think they like it so much? It is a reminder of the promises Robert and I have made to each other and that gives them a great sense of security and peace. All’s right with mom and dad, all’s right with the world.  I know that my marriage relationship is the one that all the family hinges around.  I don’t thank God nearly enough for my wonderful, faithful, patient, funny, smart, kind, visionary, loving, spontaneous, enduring husband!

I will be here by Steven Curtis Chapman

Tomorrow morning if you wake
up and the sun does not appear
I will be here
If in the dark, we lose sight of love
Hold my hand, and have no fear
‘Cause I will be here

I will be here
When you feel like being quiet
When you need to speak your mind
I will listen
And I will be here
When the laughter turns to cryin’
Through the winning, losing and trying
We’ll be together
I will be here

Tomorrow morning, if you wake up
And the future is unclear
I will be here
Just as sure as seasons were made for change
Our lifetimes were made for these years
So I will be here

I will be here
And you can cry on my shoulder
When the mirror tells us we’re older
I will hold you
And I will be here
To watch you grow in beauty
And tell you all the things you are to me
I will be here

I will be true to the promise I have made
To you and to the One who gave you to me

Tomorrow morning, if you wake up
And the sun does not appear
I will be here
Oh, I will be here

Robert, I love you.
