I LOVE “How Great Thou Art”!  We included it as part of our ceremony.   Not only is it a beautiful hymn, it also bears personal significance to my family.  But I think it would be a great option for you and your Fiance to consider.

Two of my favorites are Joyful, Joyful, We Adore You and Be Thou My Vision…  You might want to check in with a grandparent or parent, because you might discover they have a favorite that you could use as well!

Like Missbliss suggested, I love “Be Thou My Vision”. It’s such an old and beautiful hymn.  I’ve considered using it in my wedding because it’s one of my favorite hymns.   Another hymn that might be good for a wedding is “All Things Bright and Beautiful” especially if you’re interested in something that is more generally spiritual and isn’t heavy on specific theological language.  I think it’s a beautiful hymn myself.  Let us know what you pick.  I love hymns!

I’m also Episcopalian.  Our communion hymn is going to be “On Eagle’s Wings.”  I know it’s used in practically every wedding (and a lot of funerals) but I just love it!

Some of our hymns are Be thou my vision, the servant song (EXCELLENT for weddings and never used), and Set me as a Seal by Matt Maher (based on song of songs).

We did “Have Thine Own Way Lord” for our hymn.  It was just instrumental and played while we took communion and did our unity candle.

Absolutely sweet and touching moments!

We’re having Joyful Joyful.

It’s happy, upbeat, easy to sing, and we like it!

@KLP2010:I love servant song! We had that at our wedding. I cried the first time I heard it.

@lilybay: I also love the servant song!

Also, you could use “We Will Serve the Lord”. I LOVE this one, too!

Our organist recommended: Jesus, Come! For We Invite You.  It was in the Lutheran hymnal.  I’m a bit of a theology geek and really liked the words.

We used Praise to the Lord the Almighty in the service and then our Recessional was Joyful, Joyful — it was so fun to walk out to really upbeat music and everyone singing.

I 4th “Be Thou My Vision” if I don’t use that for one of the entrance/processionals we will probably use that as our hymn.
