A Wedding Song (The Beat Goes On)

SANDY’S SONG (YOU’RE THE ANSWER TO MY PRAYER)*

It seems like only yesterday
You came into my life
The dreams of “us” I had
Are now coming true tonight
I know deep in my heart, as I see you standing there—
A package wrapped in heaven—
And you’re the answer to my prayer.

***

You’re the longing in my heart
You’re what I wanted most
You have filled an empty place
That no one else could fill—
I love you so!—
You’re in my heart
And we’ve got a life to share
You’re all that I want, and ever could need
You’re the answer to my prayer!

***

Hand in hand we’ll face each day
There’ll be laughter mixed with tears
But you’re the only one
I want to be with through the years
You’re God’s own gift to me:
A precious jewel rare
Heaven’s light beams from your face
And you’re the answer to my prayer…

—Scott Mitchell, August 1983, sung to Sandy on our wedding day; thanks to my buddy, Kevin Moore, for collaborating with me on this song and making it perfect for our special day!
