BRIDAL CHORUS by Richard Waner
Here comes the bride, she’s full of pride.
All you present turn your heads and behold
Her steps so firm, her will confirm
That she has been and will always behold.
Inside her heart, she’s full of joy
She approaches to meet the boy
My prayer is quite short and without lie
My darling lead me now to the Altar
So that I become your dear little legal star
And you will be my own until I die.
Here comes the bride she’s full of pride.
All you present nod your heads in assent
Her steps so firm her will confirm
yes she’s ready to give her consent
- Guided by us, thrice happy pair
Enter this doorway ‘its life that invites
All that is brave, all that is fair
Love now triumphant forever unites
Champion of virtue, boldly advance
Flower of beauty, gently advance
Now the loud mirth of revealing is ended
Night bringing peace and bliss has descended
Fanned by the breath of happiness rest
Closed to the world by love, only blessed.
