Covenant of Marriage of Lyall Sanders and Lisa Gratrix

Processional Music / Entry



Minister God be with you.     All respond And also with you.


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.




Wonderful Tonight

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
This beautiful lady that's walking around with me.
And then she asks me, "Do you feel all right?"
And I say, "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight."

I feel wonderful because I see
The love light in your eyes.
And the wonder of it all
Is 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 wonderful tonight.
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight."
