Thread Name: Folk song for a wedding? Suggestions
Subject: RE: Folk song for a wedding? Suggestions
The world needs a wedding-entrance folk song, so I just wrote one while lying in the bath.

To the tune of "All Creatures of our God and King" (Lasst uns erfreuen.)

Come, friends, the wedding day is here.
Come, friends, with prayer and loving cheer
Join together, Join together!
Come kith* and kin, you're welcome here.
Come friends and family, far and near
Fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers
Bless these new ones! Bless their union!
Join together!

(PM'd to kampervan)

*kith = familiar friends, neighbors., fellow countrymen or acquaintances
