Gentle (A Wedding Song)

part lyrics
 

woman

 

 

 

 

(alt. if verse sung by man)

 

Gentle words, softly spoken

To the one healed my heart broken.

 

To you I owe my life.

You chose me to be your wife.

(You chose to become my wife.)

 

Now I give, and I love

Once again.

 

man

(up 1/2 step)

 

Gentle touch, two hearts blending.

Life’s past hurts, truly mending.

 

And with each happy sigh

I know the reason why

 

Now I give, and I love

With all my heart.

 

both

(up 1/2 step)

 

Gentle soul, I am safe now.

I can trust, now I know how.

 

You’re always here for me.

Your kind ways turned the key.

 

Now I give, and I love

For all time.

 

woman

man

woman

man

both

(each up 1/2 step)

 

Now I give…

                     Now I give…

And I love…

                     And I love…

For all time.
