Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Notes

Marie J. Post (PHH 5) wrote this text in 1966 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for her son Jack's wedding. It was first published in the Psalter Hymnal Supplement (1974) and revised for publication in the 1987 Psalter Hymnal. The text's phrases were inspired by words from the prayer that concludes the traditional wedding formulary of the Christian Reformed Church (Psalter Hymnal, pp. 1008-1009). Liturgical Use: Towards the close of a wedding service as a sung prayer. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook
