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?
