LET OUR ADVENTURE BEGIN
(a wedding song)

 

(M)  I take you to be my wife,
to have and to hold for the rest of my life.

Let our adventure begin. Let our adventure begin.

(W)  I take you to be my husband,
to love, honor, cherish till death us do part.

Let our adventure begin.  Let our adventure begin

1.   (Together)  For better or worse I will stand with you.
In sickness and health I'll be there.
For richer or poorer I'll always stay
close by your side.
 

(M)  I take you to be my wife,
to have and to hold for the rest of my life.

Let our adventure begin. Let our adventure begin.

(W)  I take you to be my husband,
to love, honor, cherish till death us do part.

Let our adventure begin.  Let our adventure begin

2. (Together)  Before all those gathered we make these vows
according to God's holy law.
In good times and bad, as the years go by,
we'll live as one.  We'll live as one.

(M)  Let our adventure begin. 

(W)  Let our adventure begin.

(Together)  Let our adventure begin.

Let our adventure begin !

BACKGROUND

I have tried several times in the past to write a song for weddings,
but this is the first one I have been able to complete !!

Three recent events helped shaped this song. 
The engagement of our youngest daughter, hearing the vows given at the wedding
of two church friends and the recent the royal wedding in England.

1) Our daughter and her new fiancÚ, in their Facebook engagement announcement,
used the phrase "Excited for our next adventure!"

2) Our church friends included the word 'honor' in their vows,
prompting me to add that word in the second verse.

3) Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did not write their own vows, and instead said
traditional vows like royal brides and grooms of years past. The royal couple said
their “I dos” in front of 600 guests at St. George’s Chapel. As the 
Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby officiated, the couple made the same vow to
one another as they held hands.

Harry recited first: “I Harry, take you, Meghan, to be my wife,
to have and to hold from this day forward,” he said.
“For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health,
to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God’s holy law.
In the presence of God I make this vow.”

Meghan made the same vow as her new husband, saying:
“I Meghan, take you, Harry, to be my husband, to have and to hold
from this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer,
in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part;
according to God’s holy law. In the presence of God I make this vow.”
(from a story by Diana Pearl)
