    Wow I really like that version! I think it’s a beautiful song and that if you feel it fits the two of you then go for it. I’ve never really noticed the line referring to giving thanks and praying before so I don’t think that would matter too much for me. If it is rubbing you the wrong way just keep this one in the back of your mind and keep scouring for that perfect song. The idea of this song may grow on you the more you look around.

    @KatNYC2011: My best friend danced to this at her wedding 12 years ago (not religious) and it’s timeless.  I would say it was a great choice and stick with it.  This song won’t bore you in years to come and it’s perfect for a first dance.

    I think the overwhelming arc of the song is focused on the person they love, not the spiritual aspects.  And its a beautiful song (I totally agree that this version is better!) Go for it 🙂

    It’s not a religious song. If you love it, then use it. I agree that this version is much better than Rod Stewart’s.

    My dad picked the Rod Stewart version for our father-daughter dance. I say use it. I had no idea it had any religious connotation.

    I agree, I don’t think it is a “religious” song, and nobody will think its out of place.

    By the way our first dance was to “Someone like You” aggh I just love Van Morrison!!
