Words and Music by Don Francisco, 1977 (Capo 1st Fret if desired)

I could never promise you on just my strength alone
That all my life I'd care for you, and love you as my own
I've never known the future, I only see today
Words that last a lifetime would be more than I could say

But the love inside my heart today(tonight) is more than mine alone
It never changes, it never fails, never seeks it's own
And by the God who gives it, and who lives in me and you
I know the words I speak today(tonight) are words I'm going to do

(Chorus)
And so I stand before you now for all to hear and see
I promise you in Jesus' name the love He's given me
And through the years on earth and as eternity goes by
The life and love He's given us are never going to die…

(Interlude)

(Chorus)
And so I stand before you now for all to hear and see
I promise you in Jesus' name the love He's given me
And through the years on earth and as eternity goes by
The life and love He's given us are never going to die
The life and love He's given us are never going to die

    I am using this song in my wedding ceremony. Grew up listening to it as a little girl. We played our don franscico tape over and over again in the car.

    It's a vow given first as thanksgiving to our lord and savior jesus christ. A heart vow to the love of my life. Our wedding song... Lyrics that echo in our life song daily
    Praise jesus for the gift of love.
