"Rejoicing in His Love" // The Wedding - 4/9/15

 Andy & Cryslyn

4/9/15


Through the years a young girl prays for her husband to be,
She prays that God will reveal Himself, and set His spirit free.


To love, believe, and walk with God, His Spirit to obey,
She asks that Truth will be his guide and keep him for her someday.


Now she's rejoicing in His love as it flows from God above,
The one for whom she's prayed and dreamed is here for her to love.


She knows now who God's given to her, that she might understand,
The love of Christ for His own bride -- she's rejoicing in God's plan.


At the same time a young man asks that God will give to him a wife;
A woman pure, who loves the Lord, a friendship made for life.


He hopes that she will love God's Word and often that she'll pray;
For Jesus Christ to be her life and then turn her heart his way.


Now he's rejoicing in His love as it flows from God above.
The one for whom he's prayed and dreamed is here for him to love.


He knows now who God's given to him, that he might understand,
The love of Christ for His own bride -- he's rejoicing in God's plan.


Today they come to unite their hearts as one in Jesus' name;
They'll give their hearts, their lives, their love; a ring to seal the same.


What once was two shall become one, that the world might see again,
A testimony of the love of Christ between a woman and a man.


Now they're rejoicing in His love as it flows from God above,
The ones for whom they've prayed and dreamed are here for them to love.


They know now who God's given to them, that they might understand,
The love of Christ for His own bride -- they're rejoicing in God's plan.
