1 Deign this union to approve,
And confirm it, God of love.
Bless Thy servants; on their head
Now the oil of gladness shed;
In this nuptial bond to Thee
Let them consecrated be.

2 In prosperity, be near,
To preserve them in thy fear;
In affliction, let Thy smile
All the woes of life beguile;
And when every change is past,
Take them to Thyself at last.

Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, 1871
