Wedding Stanza

It’s been a pretty busy wedding season this summer (which included the wedding of my older brother Rob). I thought I’d indulge in a bit of nostalgia and share this “wedding stanza” I wrote to The Power of the Cross by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend, my wife’s favorite hymn. This stanza was sung as my beautiful bride Heather came down the aisle:

Oh, to see His face
Beaming on that day,
Splitting the sky with shouts of joy!
Oh, to see His bride
Fully sanctified,
Gleaming of clothes of white!
(invisible sentence I had to put in to format this!)

CHORUS:

This, the pow’r of the cross:
Christ, the Groom, slain for us.
What a love! What a cost!
We stand forever at the cross.
(invisible sentence I had to put in to format this!)
