Battle Hymn of Love

By Kathy Mattea

I will pledge my heart, to the love we share.
Through the good and bad times too.
I'll forsake my rest for your happiness:
'Til my death I will stand by you.

With God as my witness, this vow I will make;
To have and to hold you, no other to take.
For rich or for poor, under skies grey or blue,
'Til my death I will stand by you.

There are wars and there are rumours, of wars yet to come.
Temptations we'll have to walk through.
Though others may tremble, I will not run.
'Til my death I will stand by you.

I will put on the armour of faithfulness,
To fight for a heart that is true.
'Til the battle is won, I will not rest.
'Til my death I will stand by you.

With God as my witness, this vow I will make;
To have and to hold you, no other to take.
For rich or for poor, under skies grey or blue,
'Til my death I will stand by you.

'Til the battle is won, I will not run.
'Til my death I will stand by you.

  • Wedding song Tattoo inspiration

    We had this song at our wedding in 1993. We'll be married 19 yrs in Sept. I'm going to get "til my death I will stand by you" tattooed on my left wrist.

  • Wonderful song

    My now husband played this song for me when we were planning the wedding. We ended up using it as our vows, "we sang our vows to each other". After 13 years we are still singing duets together.
