Never Doubt I Love

On November 13, 1999 I married my best friend… now here we are, ten years later, older, (hopefully) wiser, and deeper in love and friendship.

Happy 10th Anniversary to us!

ringsLooking back and thinking about our wedding day inspired me to do a search for “our” songs so I could share them here as a bit of a wedding remembrance. The title of the first – “Never Doubt I Love” – is actually inscribed on each of our wedding bands, and the song played as we signed the register. The second – “Have a Little Faith in Me” – was performed as part of the ceremony by two of our friends (one sang and the other accompanied him on the piano).

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find a video of the first song that allowed embedding, but clicking on the title will link you to a video that uses the song performed by Melanie Doane as background music. You should listen… it’s a lovely song!

 

Never Doubt I Love
(Inspired by Hamlet’s letter to Ophelia)
Written by Ted Dykstra | Vocals by Melanie Doane

In an age of troubles
In an age of uncertainty
In an age of dwindling hope
You still have me

No matter where you are
No matter how far from home
No matter if you’re lost
You still have me

Doubt that the stars are fire
Doubt that the earth doth move
Doubt truth to be a liar
But never doubt I love
Never doubt I love

You may lose things dear to you
You may feel naked and alone
You may think you’re losing your faith
But you still have me

Remember when you’re tired
Remember when you’re defeated
They can take all your dreams
But you still have me

Doubt that the stars are fire
Doubt that the earth doth move
Doubt truth to be a liar
But never doubt I love
Never doubt I love

I know your pain
I won’t pretend
Serve God, love me
And mend

 


Have a Little Faith in Me

 

Now… on to the next ten!

    My darling friend and wife.
    I'm crying as I read this lovely post. I have few words to express how I feel.

    The words from Amazing Grace come to mind over and over:

    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
    That saved a wretch like me.
    I once was lost but now am found,
    Was blind, but now I see.

    You are my Grace love, and my guiding star.

    I love you.

    Peter
