How is this for an edit? Small changes, but it almost turns the song into a prayer

Forever can never be long enough for me
To feel like I’ve had long enough with you
Forget the world now we won’t let them see

But there’s one thing left to do

Now that the weight has lifted
Love has surely shifted my way
Marry Me
Today and every day
Marry Me
Please be mine, those are the words I always pray
Say you will
Amen

Say you will

Amen

 

Together can never be close enough for me
Feel like I am close enough to you
You wear white and I’ll wear out the words I love you

And you’re beautiful

Now that the wait is over
And God has truly shown us love’s way

Marry me
Today and every day
Marry me
Please be mine, those are the words I always pray
Say you will
Amen

Say you will

Amen

Promise me
You’ll always be

Happy by my side
I promise to
Sing to you
When all the music dies
And marry me

Today and everyday
Marry me

Please be mine, those are the words I always pray
Say you will

Amen
Say you will

Marry me
Amen

I’m thinking change the lyric “if I ever get the nerve to say hello in this cafe,” not sure what but that seems like a good place to add in God. Maybe something like, ” and the grace of God will lead us and take all our fears away… Not the best but I’m going to think on it….

I think a combination of the two suggestions that were given would be perfect for your needs.  I love the song too!

Forever can never be long enough for me
To feel like I’ve had long enough with you
Forget the world now we won’t let them see
But there’s one thing left to do

Now that we are here today
Love has been brought through the love of Christ (or shown through the eyes of Christ)
Marry Me
Today and under God
Marry Me
And together we’ll walk this path through Christ
It’s our will
Mm-hmm
It’s our will
Mm-hmm

Together can never be close enough for me
Feel like I am close enough to you
You wear white and I’ll wear out the words I love you
And you’re beautiful
Now that the wait is over
And love is being shown in the church today
Marry me
Today and under God (OR and together we’ll pray)
Marry me

Say you will
Mm-hmm
Say you will
Mm-hmm

And together we’ll walk this path through Christ

Promise me
You’ll always be
Happy by my side
I promise to
be there for you

whenever you cry

Now that we are here today
Love has been brought through the love of Christ (or shown through the eyes of Christ)
Marry Me
Today and under God
Marry Me
And together we’ll walk this past through Christ
It’s our will
Mm-hmm
It’s our will
Mm-hmm

I think you’ll understand where I’m going, you can change the God/Christ references to your own.

I am soo glad you posted this topic!  I am 20 days away from our wedding and just found out yesterday and the church didn’t approve this song.  I really had my hopes up to walk down the aisle to this song.. There are a ton of great suggestios posted!  Thanks!!

So you will have someone sing it?  I think all the suggestions above are good!

If this doesn’t work , you could probably find a classical version of the song which would still be beautiful!
