1 Since Jesus freely did appear
To grace a marriage feast,
O Lord, we ask Thy presence here,
To be a wedding Guest.
2 Upon the bridal pair look down,
Who now have plighted hands;
Their union with Thy favor crown,
And bless the nuptial bands.
3 In purest love these souls unite,
That they with Christian care,
May make domestic burdens light
By taking mutual share.
4 And when that solemn hour shall come,
And life's short space be o'er,
May they in triumph reach that home,
Where they shall part no more.
