Here we stand today 
Like we always dreamed
Starting out our life together 
Light is in your eyes 
Love is in our heart 
I can't believe you're really mine forever 

Been rehearsin' for this moment all my life 
So don't act surprised 
If the feeling starts to carry me away

On this day 
I promise forever 
On this day 
I surrender my heart 
Here I stand, take my hand 
And I will honor every word that I say 
On this day 

Not so long ago 
This earth was just a field
Of cold and lonely space
Without you 
Now everything's alight
Now everything's revealed
And the story of my life is all about you 

So if you feel the cool winds blowing through your nights 
I will shelter you 
I'm forever here to chase your fears away

On this day 
I promise forever 
On this day 
I surrender my heart 
Here I stand, take my hand 
And I will honor every word I say 
On this day 

Oh, I been rehearsin' for this moment all my life 
So don't act surprised 
If the feeling starts to carry me away

On this day 
I promise forever 
On this day 
I surrender my heart 
Here we stand, like I planned 
Please say you'll always look at me this way

Like on this day

On this day
