Song for Sunday (belated): Because

Yesterday, September 1, 2013, would have been my parents 51st anniversary. 

This song was sung beautifully by my Uncle Bill just before the wedding march at their ceremony. It was a song written by Guy D'Hardelot and Edward Lockton. Popularized by Perry Como in 1948 it was sung frequently at weddings in the 1960s.

In honor of my parents, I present Because as today's (yesterday's) Song for Sunday. Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!

Because, you come to me with naught save love
And hold my hand and lift mine eyes above
A wider world of hope and joy I see
Because you come to me

Because you speak to me in accent sweet
I find the roses waking 'round my feet
And I am led through tears and joy to thee
Because you speak to me

Because God made thee mine, I'll cherish thee
Through light and darkness, through all time to be
And pray His love may make our love divine
Because God made thee mine

What songs have you used or heard at wedding ceremonies?
