Wedding Day

Album: Come to The Well (2011)
  • There's a stirring in the throne room
    And all creation holds it's breath
    Waiting now to see the bride groom
    Wondering how the bride will dress
    And she wears white
    And she knows that she's undeserving
    She bears the shame of history
    With this worn and weary maiden
    Is not the bride that he sees
    And she wears white, head to toe
    But only he could make it so

    When someone dries your tears
    When someone wins your heart
    And says your beautiful
    When you don't know you are
    And all you've longed to see
    Is written on his face
    When love has come and finally set you free
    On that wedding day
    On that wedding day

    She has danced in golden castles
    And she has crawled through beggar's dust
    But today she stands before him
    And she wears his righteousness
    And she will be who he adores
    And this is what he made her for

    When someone dries your tears
    When someone wins your heart
    And says your beautiful
    When you don't know you are
    And all you've longed to see
    Is written on his face
    When love has come and finally set you free
    On that wedding day
    On that wedding day

    When the hand that bears the only scars
    And heaven touch her face
    And the last tears she'll ever cry
    Are finally wiped away
    And the clouds roll back as he takes her hand
    And walks her through the gates
    Forever we will reign

    When someone dries your tears
    When someone wins your heart
    And says your beautiful
    When you don't know you are
    And all you've longed to see
    Is written on his face
    When love has come and finally set you free
    On that wedding day
    On that wedding day Writer/s: BERNIE HERMS, JOHN MARK HALL, MATTHEW JOSEPH WEST
