Christ, we come with joy and gladness
as we witness love made new;
hear the prayers of two united
as their lives are joined in you.
Seeking you to bond their marriage,
they are trusting you to be
in the cord which can't be broken,
giving them the strength of three.
Hope and joy and love abounding,
this our prayer for their success;
let the lives of these, our loved ones,
know the joy of those you bless.
Christ, our Shepherd, tend and keep them,
and your peace and care be known.
May the world in which you place them
praise you as their love is shown.
