A Life of Love (song)

When some friends got married in 2009, I wrote a toast. Then I added in most of Ephesians 5, and the result is this wedding song.

A Life of Love
(The Wedding Toast)
Ephesians chapter 5


A Life of Love.

Daughter, give your husband room to lead and grow.
Your respect helps him achieve
what God asks him to do.
Son, love your wife above all else, and let it show.
Give up your life for her
as Christ has done for you.

A Life of Love.

Find enjoyment in the simplest act of grace.
Find commitment in the toughest time and place.
Children of God. Children of light.
Children of love.

Find some humor in the joke you’ve heard once more.
Find adventure in the place you’ve been before.
Children of God. Children of light.
Children of love.

Imitate the Lord and live A Life of Love,
Since, as children loved by God,
you’ve received it from above.
Submit to each other in the Lord.

Find a new chance in the hope forgiveness breeds.
Find true romance in the gentle words and deeds.
Children of God. Children of light.
Children of love.

Find salvation in the resurrected Lamb.
Find communion in the loving, great I AM.
Children of God. Children of light.
Children of love.

Imitate the Lord and live A Life of Love,
Since, as children loved by God,
you’ve received it from above.
Submit to each other in the Lord.

A Life of Love.
