I will pledge my heart to the love we share
Through the good and the bad times too
I'll forsake my rest for your happiness
'Til my death I will stand by you

With God as my witness this vow I will make
To have and to hold you no other to take
For richer, for poorer, under skies gray or blue
'Til my death I will stand by you

There are wars and there are rumors of wars yet to come
Temptations we'll have to walk through
Though others may tremble, I will not run
'Til my death I will stand by you

I will put on the armor of faithfulness
And fight for a heart that is true
'Til the battle is won, I will not rest
'Til my death I will stand by you

With God as my witness this vow I will make
To have and to hold you, no other to take
For richer for poorer, under skies gray or blue
'Til my death I will stand by you

[TAG]
'Til the battle is won, I will not run
'Til my death I will stand by you

    This was one of our wedding songs (20 years ago). We've had some rough patches in our marriage, and the lord has reminded me of these lyrics time and time again.
