    There must be a God
    I believe it's true
    Cause I can see His love
    When I look at you
    And He must have a plan
    For this crazy life
    Cause He brought you here
    And placed you by my side

    And I have never been so sure
    Of anything before
    Like I am in this moment here with you
    And now for better or for worse
    So much more than only words
    And I pray every day will be the proof
    That I mean what I say when I say “I do”
    Yeah I mean what I say when I say “I do”

    You see these hands you hold
    Will always hold you up
    When the strength you have
    Just ain't strong enough
    And what tomorrow brings
    Only time will tell
    But I will stand by you
    In sickness and in health

    Cause I have never been so sure
    Of anything before
    Like I am in this moment here with you
    Now for better or for worse
    Are so much more than only words
    And I pray every day will be the proof
    That I mean what I say when I say “I do”
    Yeah I mean what I say when I say

    Take my hand and take this ring
    And know that I will always love you
    Through anything

    And as the years march on
    Like a beating heart
    I will live these words
    ‘Til death do us part

    Cause I have never been so sure
    Of anything before
    Like I am in this moment here with you
    And now for better or for worse
    So much more than only words
    And I pray every day will be the proof
    That I mean what I say when I say “I do”
    Yeah I mean what I say when I say “I do”

    Inspired by the 2009 K-LOVE Next Great Love Song winning story submitted by Jessica Larsen:

    "Touched by an Angel I first saw Chris at a West Point football game tailgate. Our eyes met from across the parking lot. I stole his hat and ran off with it, and he spent the rest of the night trying to get it back.

    In the beginning, he was my angel. I remember thinking there must be a God, because love like this is not of this earth. We were blessed with a transcendent connection. Every moment together was like breathing in new life. After graduation, Chris entered the infantry. After a brief training period, he deployed to Iraq. But not before we were married before only close family.

    He took my hands and said, 'I will love you forever, through anything.' I knew he meant it, and I did as well. Every day of his deployment I asked God to send angels to watch over Chris and his men and give them cover. After 10 months, Chris was shot in his hands by an enemy combatant. The single bullet that entered his wrists was only inches from his face. My prayers had been answered.

    Our love for one another has been the driving force behind his remarkable recovery. He is still my angel, and now I've had the opportunity to be his. This June, we will renew our vows before all our friends and family. Reaffirming our faith and commitment, we will once again hold each other's hands and promise to love each other through anything."
