So for my brother's wedding, the three of us siblings have decided to sing a blessing upon him and his bride. A blessing! I have never sang a blessing over anyone before. So this will be a first. We plan to stretch out both our hands and put it over the couple. And just sing a blessing over them. I hope it will turn out well, given that it will be done in front of 1,000 people. Haha! But I love the idea because it is a statement and it is something I can say people will remember forever.
The Blessing is called "A Clare Benediction" by John Rutter. Beautiful Music and Beautiful Lyrics. I myself would really love to sing this to my loved one in the future. I would really like to hear a solo artist sing this in the future though, with voicing...that would be great
A Clare Benediction
May the Lord show His mercy upon you;
May the light of His presence be your guide :
May He guard you and uphold you;
May His Spirit be ever by your side.
When you sleep, may His angels watch over you;
When you wake, may He fill you with His grace :
May you love Him and serve Him all your days.
Then in heaven may you see His face.
