MARRIAGE FEAST




Since Jesus freely did appear
To grace a marriage feast
O Lord, we ask Thy presence here,
To make a wedding Guest.


Upon the bridal pair look down,
Who now have plighted hands;
Their union with Thy favor crown,
And bless the nuptial bands.


With gifts of grace their hearts endow,
Of all rich dowries blest;
Their substance bless, and peace bestow,
To sweeten all the rest.


In purest love their souls unite,
That they with Christian care,
May make domestic burdens light,
By taking mutual share.


True helpers may they prove indeed,
In pray’r, and faith, and hope;
And see with joy a godly seed
To build their household up.


As Isaac and Rebecca gave
A pattern chaste and kind;
So may this married couple live,
And die in friendship join’d.


And when that solemn hour shall come,
And life's short space be o'er;
May they in triumph reach that home,
Where they shall part no more.


“O may each soul assembled here,
Be married, Lord, to thee;
Clad in thy robes, made white and fair,
To spend eternity.”
