Statement of Purpose
Minister - We, as a community of friends, are gathered here in Gods
presence to witness the marriage of Lyall Frederick Gordon Sanders and Lisa Gay Gratrix, and to ask our creator to watch over
them and their new combined family.
It's late in the evening;
she's wondering what clothes to wear.
She puts on her make-up and brushes her long brown hair.
And then she asks me,
"Do I look all right?"
And I say, "Yes, you look wonderful tonight."
We go to a party and everyone turns to see
beautiful lady that's walking around with me.
And then she asks me, "Do you feel all right?"
And I say, "Yes, I feel
I feel wonderful because I see
The love light in your eyes.
And the wonder of it all
that you just don't realize how much I love you.
It's time to go home now and I've got an aching head,
So I give
her the car keys and she helps me to bed.
And then I tell her, as I turn out the light,
I say, "My darling, you were
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight."
