O God of wisdom, life and love

O God of wisdom, life and love

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.
