The text of “A Wedding Hymn” was written by the Rev. Paul F. Becker on the occasion of his daughter, Julie, entering holy marriage in 2019.

“Since my infrequent attempts at hymn writing always begin with a specific melody in mind, I wanted to begin with a fresh, new tune that appealed to young and old alike. K. Lee Scott’s SHADES MOUNTAIN (LSB 950) fit the bill perfectly,” Becker wrote.

“… The hymn is offered with the prayer that we may rightly encourage our young people to confidently enter this God-ordained and blessed lifelong union of one man and one woman with faith, hope and love in Christ, our Savior.”
