1 A holy state is wedded life
And blest, where God joins man and wife:
A type of Jesus and His Bride,
Beloved and honored at His side.

2 Where manly worth and gentle grace
In godliness keep step apace,
There wedded love grows never stale,
Nor heaven's blessings ever fail.

3 Where by the Word the Lord is Guest,
And all through faith and prayer is blest,
There with God's grace will all be filled,
And God Himself that house will build.

4 The skillful hand and stronger arm,
Still plied with zeal and ardor warm,
With watchful eye and frugal care,
Full soon a competence prepare.

5 This chaste estate of Paradise,
Is left to man below the skies;
Prolific harbinger of good,
Perennial fount of brotherhood:

6 From this all stations emanate,
The Home the Church, and Powers of State;
Blest nursery of virtuous worth,
Be thou held sacred still on earth!
