Let There Be Love

The two of you have gathered
At this beautiful church today.
You've invited all of your family and friends
To celebrate your wedding day.

You will say I do to your very best friend,
You will become husband and wife.
Two hearts become one, one spirit, one body.
Today you will share one life.

There will be good times and good memories too.
Together you'll share laughter and fun.
I pray for you both that from this moment,
A lifetime of happiness has begun.

But there may be tough times, arguments and sadness,
Moments you may shed some tears,
But in these times, I say "Let there be love"
To help you through the difficult years.

Let love surround you in all that you do.
Let love always be your guide.
May you always be there for each other,
Right next to your partner's side.

Holding their hand, with love in your eyes,
May the two of you stand strong forever.
May you conquer your fears and fight your battles.
May you celebrate love together.

With God in your hearts you will always know love.
You will always know right from wrong.
And may God bless your both, including your children,
Keep you all healthy, safe and strong

A vow you will take, an oath you will make,
Before the good Lord above
To love one as another as I have loved you,
To always "Let there be love."
