One Flesh

I sang this at our wedding on July 25, 1998 as a surprise to Tracey.
Before our lives began, before our mothers’ wombs,
God planned to join our lives in Him this afternoon.
Our families agree and our friends in one accord.
So as we make our vows, we covenant before the LORD

To be one flesh united by our Lord,
For the sake of the gospel and God’s glory.
And we have one goal, to be like Jesus Christ,
To love our Lord and to love each other fully.

Tracey Alane, you are a gift of love to me,
A sacred trust, a treasure, you’re my beauty.
Here’s my life for you alone, to serve you and help you know
That you are loved of God and you are loved by me.

Now may His peace rest, His blessing be ours
To radiate His glory in our union.
And may our home be filled with children, God’s grace and understanding.
And may our lives be marked by the love of Jesus.

We are Yours Lord, Yours and Yours alone.
Bless our union with the power of Your Presence.
Fill us with Your Spirit to serve and love each other.
And use our lives to make disciples of Your Son.

- Rhett Wilson, 1998
