Music is the key to the soul, and it is a great way to cement a marriage or reignite the spark that exists between two people in love.

Like any other relationship, marriages are filled with rock huddles, greatly caused by mental challenges, life happenings, family changes, and the union are greatly tested.

In the Bible, we learn how marriage is an ordained union approved by God, who intends for them to be blessed. The big question is, how do you strengthen the bond between you and your partner? The are many Christian-based songs that seek to reignite a spark in marriage, restoring hope and love.

“On this hallowed ground, we have drawn the battle line

Could we just be broken together?“

But I still feel alone

 So, father give me the strength

 To be everything is called to be

Ooh, father, show me the way to living

To lead the with strong hands

To stand up when they can’t

Don’t want to leave them hungry for love

Chasing things that I could give them.”

Favorite Lyrics

“This house can’t take another fight.

Once again, our pride is the only one that wins

Turn the hands of time

Back to love’s beginning

Too many tears have touched the ground

I know it looks too far.'

But I believe. God can restore love

If we take less this time and give a little more.”
