Song: The Wedding Ring Song

The Wedding Ring Song316195320_f8d20466cd_b

 

This song came from something I witnessed while in college, at the student union. A young couple had gotten engaged, and the bride was very excited about her engagement ring. She was surrounded by a large group of her friends, excitedly showing off what she had received. I watched the groom on the outside of the circle, all but ignored by his fiance in her happiness and interacting with her girlfriends. He stood there watching awkwardly, as his bride to be focused on the gift and forgot the giver. This caused me to think about the meaning of such a ring – that it symbolized a relationship that was very valuable, and that the relationship was truly far more valuable than the ring. And so it reminded me of another relationship that was also very valuable … the relationship that could also be possible between the bride and her Savior; if she looked in His direction, she could see the love that Christ had for her.

DIAMOND RING SONG by David Kueker (©1974, 2015)

I see you wear a diamond ring; that means you are loved,
That somebody wants to spend their life with you.
But have you heard, oh have you heard, of God’s gift of His son?
He loved you so much He came and died for you…

So why don’t you … Fly away into the arms of Jesus
Take a little time to say “Hello”
You know He loves you, that He’s always thinking of you now…
You’re the kind of person that He’d really like to know,
Really like to know now, really like to know now.
Really like to know now, really like to know now.

I see there is a diamond ring, it sparkles on your hand,
Just like a tear He shed on Calvary.
Wear it with pride, my dear, wear it, wear it with pride (be so proud)
Proud of the One who came and died to set you free.

So why don’t you … Fly away into the arms of Jesus
God’s son is so easy to please (you know it’s true).
Tell Him you love Him, that you’re always thinking of Him now
Heaven can be found on your knees,
Heaven can be found on your knees.
Heaven can be found on your knees, now.
On your knees, now, Heaven can be found on your knees, now.

God gives a precious stone to those that He loves.
This is the rock we base our faith upon.
And just like a bride we’re waiting for our wedding day;
Waiting for the day when Jesus will come.

And on that day we’ll … Fly away into the arms of Jesus
We’ll see Him coming in the sky (you know it’s true)
See how He loves us … we see Him coming for us, now!
Don’t weddings make you cry? Don’t weddings make you cry?
Don’t weddings make you cry now?
Don’t they make you cry now? Don’t they make you cry now?
