Jackson, Alan - That's The Way Lyrics




With this ring I thee wed
And I give to you my life
Mine is yours and yours is mine
And we can live that way forever
With this kiss we will seal
That we now are man and wife
Two in one, one in two
That's the way it's got to be

With this love we can live
We can't keep it to ourselves
He is mine, he is yours
We can live our lives in telling
I give my heart, I give my soul
I give you all my worldly goods
Two in one, one in two
That's the way it's got to be

I will cling to you, you will cling to me
And in the shadow of the cross we'll live on bended knee

With this prayer I commit
That we both become as one
He in us, we in Him
Saying vows to one another
Hold them fast in your heart
Till the day we see the Son
Two in one, one in two
That's the way it's got to be

I will cling to you, you will cling to me
And in the shadow of the cross we'll live on bended knee

With this prayer I commit
That we both become as one
He in us, we in Him
Saying vows to one another
Hold them fast in your heart
Till the day we see the Son
Two in one, one in two
That's the way it's got to be
Two in one, one in two
That's the way it's got to be

That's the way it's got to be
That's the way it's got to be

  22. iulian dumitru

    you can find the link to download the song on my channel

  23. viktoriagabriella

    @dodgecoronet68 Hi,

    You are right. His wife Denise wrote a book @It's all about Him' and in that there is a version with a CD sleeve edition. The song is on that.
    You can find it on Amazon if you google Alan Jackson rather than Denise. It will come up.
    Good luck!

  24. dodgecoronet68

    How did you get this song? I mean, I just can't find the album, so far it's related to his wife's book, but I don't see if the songs are included with it or what! Please tell us how to get this song

  31. Krisshay13

    I had this song sang at my wedding 30 years ago. I had no idea Alan Jackson had re-recorded it.
    I have The Pat Terry Group's album this song is on. Found it several years ago through an online auction. But, pulling out the old record player isn't something I do often. I will have to buy the book just for this CD.
    Thanks so much for posting.....was great to hear it again.

  32. toocheaptobuyatripod

    You're welcome and, I had no idea about Pat Terry. I don't think I've ever come across it.
