Dearly Beloved


  1. Dearly Beloved Betsy Carter 3:01

My daughter’s upcoming wedding inspired this song, as well as the Biblical view of marriage. It’s so beautiful, and is a type of Christ and His church. I don’t pretend to understand what that means, but to me it is profound and moving. This was played at her wedding and I sang it live at my son’s.
Beloved we are gathered together today
To join our hearts as one
One in our love, one in emotion
Beloved, we’ll be joining together today
Uniting ourselves as one
Flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone
Dearly beloved, dearly beloved
Beloved though our spirits remain apart
God will join them in mystery
A new entity; one in a marriage
Dearly beloved, dearly beloved
Dearly beloved, dearly beloved
