Wedding Song – With You

With You
I am very excited to announce the release of my newest piece of sheet music, With You. I wrote this song almost 10 years ago for my husband, Brian. It was near our tenth anniversary, and I wanted something special to express how blessed I felt to have him as my husband.

Although I wrote it for my anniversary, it would be very fitting as a wedding song for a Christian wedding. My husband and I will celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary this year (I can’t believe it!), and it truly is “sweeter than before”.

No marriage is perfect, and mine is no exception, but marriage is a precious and beautiful thing when it is founded on Christ. Brian and I do not have a good marriage because I am a perfect wife, nor because he is a perfect husband. We do have a good marriage because we have a common goal to please the Lord. I am well aware that if that focus changes for either of us, our marriage has no guarantee of continuing to be a success. I pray that the Lord will keep our hearts faithful to Him, and give us many more years for His glory!

To a young person who is contemplating or entering marriage, I encourage you to be sure that you have chosen the Lord Jesus Christ as your first love and loyalty, and that you have chosen a mate who feels the same. If your greatest passion is Christ, He will teach, increase, and bless your love for one another.

Here are the lyrics to With You:

The love we have is not by chance,
More than a fairytale romance,
For as we sought God’s perfect will
Our heart’s desires He did fulfill.

For with you, my joys are brighter,
And with you, my burdens lighter,
And each day I am thankful I have found a love that’s strong and true
With you.
So to you, I will be faithful,
And for you, forever grateful,
For there’s nothing in this world that I would rather do
Than share my life and love with you.

Two separate lives God joins as one,
As man and wife we now become.
Not less am I, but so much more,
Each day is sweeter than before.

For with you, my joys are brighter,
And with you, my burdens lighter,
And each day I am thankful I have found a love that’s strong and true
With you.
So to you, I will be faithful,
And for you, forever grateful,
For there’s nothing in this world that I would rather do
Than share my life and love with you.

This song is available as printed sheet music or a digital download. There is a vocal MP3 download available. There is also a piano accompaniment track available (it includes the lyrics and vocal MP3). Finally, if you want to purchase all of it – the sheet music, and the piano soundtrack, you can download the package.

I hope this song will be a blessing, and that each young couple who chooses to use it in their wedding will also choose the Lord Jesus Christ as the center of their new home.
