    Hi Amandahr, I asked a very similar question a couple of weeks ago - the song we wanted is Candi Statton's 'You got the love', and says 'Lord' a few times so I was worried we wouldn't be able to have it!

    I emailed our registrar and she said that as long as the overall song wasn't 'of religious content', they didn't mind the odd word - she said it was fine to have songs like 'I say a little prayer' and 'God only knows'. So you should be fine!

    You might want to phone/email your registrar just in case though, as it may differ depending on your local registry office (ours was Lincolnshire).

    Hope this helps! x

    I'm sure you'll be ok. Let us know how you get on! x
  • We were not allowed anything with God, Marriage, Lord, Prayer, Angel for our reg office CP. They are strict in Glasgow!

    To be fair - in terms of songs - most don't want to know what your playing in advance. I think as others have said, as long as it's not a fully religious song like 'Onward Chirstian Soldiers' I'm sure you'll be absolutely fine!!
  • I agree should be fine but worth calling them to check!
