1 Thou Lord from whom all blessings flow
Thy blessings fill each land;
All they who seek thy will to do,
Will find thy bounteous hand.
2 All states of life are blest by thee,
By thee, our Sovereign Lord;
Such must the state of marriage be,
According to thy word.
3 It was by thy command ordain'd,
Confirm'd and ratified.
And for a great and noble end,
Both blest and sanctified.
4 We join this couple in thy name,
Bless them O gracious God,
And let thy blessings rest on them,
Which is from thee bestow'd.
5 Be thou, their counsel and their guide,
Direct them in thy ways;
And strengthen them on ev'ry side:
In peace to spend their days.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CCIX
