Soundtrack Saturday :: Only Hope

It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these… but today seems like a good day to bring it back.

This is the song I walked down the aisle to at my wedding.  I’m not usually the cheesy chick-flick type, and theatrical ballads aren’t typically my thing.  And yet, something about this song is so beautiful and powerful.  It was the perfect choice for the soundtrack of my wedding – my life changing was from that of just a girl to that of somebody’s wife, best friend, life co-conspirator.

It seems so completely appropriate today.

I’m no longer just a girl, or a wife.

I’m going to be somebody’s mother. 

How beautiful is that?

Only Hope :: Switchfoot (vocals by Mandy Moore)

There’s a song that’s inside of my soul
It’s the one that I’ve tried to write over and over again
I’m awake in the infinite cold
But You sing to me over and over and over again

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands
and pray to be only Yours
I pray to be only Yours
I know now you’re my only hope

Sing to me the song of the stars
Of Your galaxy dancing and laughing
and laughing again
When it feels like my dreams are so far
Sing to me of the plans that You have for me over again

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I know now you’re my only hope

I give You my destiny
I’m giving You all of me
I want Your symphony
Singing in all that I am
At the top of my lungs I’m giving it back

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I know now you’re my only hope

    Is it bad that I’m thinking of Princess Leia? But seriously, great song to walk down the aisle to!

    I love this song. If I had a “real” wedding, it would have played there. Very appropriate for you’re new status. 🙂
