Favorite Christian Wedding Songs Lyrics
If this is the kind of love song you are looking for, you are unlikely to find one performed by singers other than gospel artists and bands. Here are a few such Christian wedding love songs with depth that will add meaning to your ceremony.
I Will Be Here by Steven Curtis Chapman
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
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
Power of your Love (Hymn)
Lord, I come to You — let my heart be changed, renewed
Flowing from the grace that I’ve found in You.
Lord, I’ve come to know
The weaknesses I see in me — will be stripped away
By the power of Your love
Hold me close,
Let Your love surround me
Bring me near, draw me to Your side
And as I wait, I’ll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on by the power of Your love
When God Made You by Newsong
It’s always been a mystery to me,
How two hearts can come together,
And love can last forever.
But now that I have found you I believe,
That a miracle has come when God sends the perfect one.
So gone are all my questions about why,
And I’ve never been so sure of anything in my life
Oh I wonder what God was thinking, when he created you.
I wonder if He knew everything I would need,
Because he made all my dreams come true.
When God made you, He must have been thinking about me.
Unfailing Love (Kelly’s Song) by Jimmy Needham
You’re my unfathomable precious unimaginable joy
And you’re exceedingly exciting and abundantly more than I could ask for
With your hand in mine we will pass through time and space
And every second every minute every hour of every day I’ll say
My unfailing love for you will not be moved
For you will not be moved
My unfailing love for you
And though the mountains be shaken
And the hills be removed
Yet my unfailing love for you
I Do (Promise To Love You) by Phil & Brenda Nicholas
I’ve waited so long for this day to come
It’s hard to believe that it’s finally here
I know a man, ain’t supposed to cry
But it’s getting real hard to hold back the tears
When I see you walking down the aisle
And you flash to me that gorgeous smile
As you near, my heart skips a beat
And at the altar we finally meet.
And I tell you…
Yes I do promise to, forever love you
I’ll love and cherish you the rest of my days, yes always.
This love that God has given, makes life much more worth living
He’s blessed us with a love that could only come from above.
How Beautiful by Ben Utecht
Awake my love, for time is standing still
While breathless words are waiting to be filled
A story of love that penetrates the soul
The Spirit has led us together at last
No more waiting the time has passed
Fading from myself, dissolving into you
How beautiful you are my darling
Oh, how beautiful you are to me
Your lips are like a scarlet ribbon wrapping me
Your eyes behind your veil fly away
The secret of us is welling deep inside
Waiting for the choice that will make it come alive
So I choose you my love to take this walk with me
You are mine, oh and I am yours.
From the breaking of the day, until all the shadows fall away
Household Of Faith by Steve & Marijean Green
Here we are at the start committing to each other
By His word and from our hearts
We will be a family in a house that will be a home
And with faith we’ll build it strong
We’ll build a household of faith
That together we can make
And when the strong winds blow it won’t fall down
As one in Him we’ll grow and the whole world will know
We are a household of faith
Now to be a family we’ve got to love each other
At any cost unselfishly
And our home must be a place that fully abounds with grace
A reflection of His face
For You by John Denver (this one and the one to follow aren’t by gospel artists but I think they deserve a spot on this list)
Just to wake up each morning
Just to you by my side
Just to know that you’re never really far away
Just a reason for living
Just to say I adore
Just to know that you’re here in my heart to stay.
For you all the rest of my life
For you all the best of my life
For you alone, only for you.
Just the words of a love song
Just the beat of my heart
Just the pledge of my life, my love for you.
The Prayer by Josh Groban
I pray you’ll be our eyes
And watch us where we go
And help us to be wise
In times when we don’t know
Let this be our prayer
As we go our way
Lead us to a place
Guide us with your Grace
To a place where we’ll be safe
La luce che to dai
