XXXV. To such is bless'd, their marriage day

1 To such is bless'd, their marriage day,
Who humbly to their Saviour pray,
To be with them, and to attend:
To be their guest, their Lord and friend.

2 God, who ordain'd our marriage state,
Provides for us in ev'ry fate,
To him is known all we do need,
Our wants he will supply indeed.

3 Should he appear to hide his face,
Yet the rich bounties of his grace
Are ever present, ever near,
Tho' they do not always appear.

4 The truth of this we may be taught:
The miracles that Jesus wrought
In Cana-town of Galilee,
Sufficient proof thereof may be.

5 His counsels and his deep decrees
No eye of human creature sees;
His wond'rous ways are best reveal'd,
Where his dear promise is fulfill'd.

6 O let us then by faith endure!
Till all our trials shall be o'er,
Then by experience we shall know
What Jesus for his friends will do.
