I think that *could* work well (I love listening to his version) . My concern would be people who think they know the song and go into autopilot. If you have a program or somesort of projection make sure to put “Amzing Grace (Chains are Gone)” to designate that this is different than the original.

We’re having at least one hymn (still trying to decide, our officiant is a worship pastor so he has an opinion too!) and opening with “Simple Gifts” for the processional. We’re trying to keep the ceremony a resonable length (30-45minutes) so my knees do not give out (managed to do more damage to already weak knees this winter). FH very much wants to stick to classic hymns, which is interesting as most of my side will be Catholic or Anabaptist and most of his will be Baptist or Presbyterian.

I think that song is great! We’re having a worship song as well… I put the lyrics in the program for those who don’t know the song. I would suggest doing that if you can.

Some other good praise & worship songs that I like & feel would be appropriate for the unity of marriage are:

Tear Down The Walls – Hillsong

Forever Reign – Hillsong

Pleasing to You – Desperation Band (I considered this one for our prep for communion)

How He Loves Us – David Crowder Band

You Never Let Go – Matt Redman

Nothing But the Blood – Matt Redma

and our leading into communion song is

Love Like Fire – Hillsong Live

Hope that gets the ideas going =)

I don’t know if this fits the mood you’re going for, but I LOVE the Neko Case version of “This Little Light.” It’s on her album The Tigers Have Spoken

I also like Iris Dement, “The Shores of Jordan”

“I Shall Not Be Moved,” by, like, a million different artists

I’ve always been a big fan of Amazing Grace but for some reason I just can’t get into Chris Tomlin’s version of it; I’m having the church band conduct all the worship though so just ignore me 😛

These are the songs I’m trying to narrow down at the minute:

Amazing Grace

How Great Thou Art (no idea wo wrote this, but I found a version sung by Elvis once :P)

Indescribable – Chris Tomlin

In Christ Alone – Kings Kaleidoscope

How Deep The Fathers Love

God of Wonders (again no idea who wrote this)


Hope this helps!
