At Cana, Lord, thou didst appear

Full Text

1 At Cana, Lord, Thou didst appear
To grace a marriage feast;
We ask Thee likewise to be here
And be a wedding guest.

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

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

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

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

6 On every soul assembled here,
O make Thy face to shine;
Thy goodness more our hearts can cheer
Than richest food or wine.

Amen.
