We'll Walk Together

For all my life I prayed and wondered
how this day would be --

When God would give such priceless treasure,
a helpmate for me!

And now I see you standing here,
my radiant darling bride!
My wildest dreams have been fulfilled
with you standing by my side.

I see your smile and feel your pleasure,
delighting in me

A love so strong so pure and holy
such great mystery

and all the prayers I prayed for you,
my handsome faithful man

Have more than come to realization
our love was in His plan!

Now we'll walk together hand in hand
rejoicing in the love that our Maker planned

Our pathways joined, a new life begun --
and we'll walk together
united as one.

Words and music by Rachel Wissmann

Hi Bethany, I love the wedding pictures!

It's just an idea, but now that you're married, could Rachel give your blog a "New Look" like Josiah and Abi's?

God bless! Grace
