This Is the Day


Songwriter/Performer: Scott Wesley Brown
Category: 70s, Christian

Scott Wesley Brown was one of the early pioneers of Christian Contemporary Music (CCM) back in the 70s when it was just called "Jesus music." Since 1974 he has released over two dozen albums and written songs recorded by a number of other CCM artists including Petra, Pat Boone, Bruce Carroll, Sandi Patty, and Amy Grant.

This song is one of his early ones, from his 1979 One Step Closer album. It is a simple, folk-style, acoustic-guitar-driven ballad with a timeless quality to it. It's been a popular choice for weddings from the time it was released - the lyrics are geared for weddings - though I haven't heard it done in recent years. It would fit really well in a unity ceremony.

LYRICS

This is the day that the Lord has made
And I’m so glad he made you
With each rising sun you are here by my side
You are more than a dream come true

To have you to hold you
To love you to pray
To share with to care with
To hold hands and say

This is the day that the Lord has made
And I will rejoice, I will rejoice
I will rejoice with you!

This is the love that the Lord has made
That you and I are one
Love’s mystery is unfolding today
Written for us in the Son

For better, for worse
For rich or for poor
Each day that passes
I’ll love you more, 'cause

This is the day that the Lord has made
And I will rejoice, I will rejoice
I will rejoice with you!
