Hymn/Song Information

Father in Thy presence now Has been




Father, in Thy presence now
Has been pledged the nuptial vow;
Hear to heart, as hand to hand,
Linked in one Thy children stand.


God of love! this union bless,
Not with earth’s low happiness;
But with joys whose heavenly spring
Shall diviner raptures bring.


May these blended souls be found
Firm in duty’s active round;
Daily every burden share,
Nightly seek Thy shadowing care.


When against their trembling forms
Shoot the arrows of life’s storms;
Or when age and sickness wait
Heralds at life’s parting gate;—


In the fulness of belief,
May they look beyond the grief;
And together fearless tread
In the path where Thou shalt lead.
