Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

O God of wisdom, life and love

O God of wisdom, life and love

Author: Menno M. Brubacher (1926)
Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O God of wisdom, life and love,
Thine is the blessed plan
In holy bonds of love to join
The twain, created man.

2 These souls betrothed before Thee stand;
Thy blessing we implore;
Unite Thou them in heart and hand,
And guide them ever more.

3 As they go forth upon life's way,
Sustain them by Thy grace;
May they Thy holy laws obey
And live in joy and peace.

4 May they with holy lives adorn
Thy doctrines, Lord, and be
Amid life's sunshine and its storm
True witnesses for Thee.

5 And when Thou, Lord, shalt come again
To gather home Thine own,
May they, with duty nobly done,
Be blessed before Thy throne.
