Church Wedding Songs

Marian K Nov 4, 2018
The best Christian wedding songs are those by gospel artists and bands. Here is a list of some of the most popular ones.
If you enjoy gospel music, or sing in your church choir, then you probably already have a list of songs you love. As the wedding ceremony includes a number of hymns, you should easily be able to incorporate some of your favorites.
Most couples also want to incorporate one or two love songs into their ceremony. However, if you are a couple of faith, it is best to pick gospel love songs, that will include God in the equation, as opposed to secular love songs that speak just of the two of you. Here is a selection of popular church wedding songs to include in your ceremony.

Christian Wedding Songs

Wedding Song (There Is Love) by Noel Paul Stookey

He is now to be among you at the calling of your hearts
Rest assured this troubadour is acting on his part
The union of your spirits here has caused him to remain
For whenever two or more of you are gathered in his name
There is love
There is love...
...Well a man shall leave his mother and a woman leave her home
They shall travel on to where the two shall be as one
As it was in the beginning, is now until the end
Woman draws her life from man and gives it back again
And there's love
There is love...
...Well then what's to be reason for becoming man and wife?
Is it love that brings you here, or love that gives you life?

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.

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 come 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.

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 ...

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.

Stronger by Delirious (this would be an unusual choice and usage)

Oh, I love You from the depths of my heart,
And nothing here will tear us apart.
Everything's beautiful with You,
Everything's beautiful, when You invade my life.
And I'm living just to say that 'I love You' ...

Lord You Have My Heart by Delirious

Lord you have my heart
And I will search for yours
Jesus take my life and lead me on.

Lord you have my heart
And I will search for yours
Let me be to you a sacrifice...
...(men) And I will praise you Lord
(ladies) I will praise you Lord
(men) And I will sing of love come down
(ladies) I will sing of love come down
(men) And as you show your face
(ladies) Show your face
(together) We'll see your glory here.

Catholic Wedding Songs

Draw me Close to You

Draw me close to You
Never let me go
I lay it all down again,
To hear You say that I'm Your friend.
...You are my desire
No one else will do
'Cause nothing else could take Your place,
To feel the warmth of Your embrace.
Help me find the way
Bring me back to You.

You're all I want,
You're all I've ever needed.
You're all I want,
Help me know You are near.

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.
It would also be great if you could have the choir and guests sing the 'Blessing Song' for the couple:
The Lord bless thee and keep thee
The Lord make His face to shine upon thee,
And be gracious unto thee
And be gracious unto thee
The Lord lift up His countenance upon thee,
And give thee peace.
By including these beautiful, contemporary gospel songs in your ceremony, you can set the right tone, as well as make the celebration very meaningful.
