1 O perfect Love, all human thought transcending,
lowly we kneel in prayer before your throne,
that theirs may be the love which knows no ending,
whom you forevermore unite in one.
2 O perfect Life, be now their full assurance
of tender charity and steadfast faith,
of patient hope and quiet, brave endurance,
with childlike trust that fears no pain or death.
3 Grant them the joy which brightens earthly sorrow;
grant them the peace which calms all earthly strife,
and to life's day the glorious unknown morrow
that dawns upon eternal love and life.
