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.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 To such is bless'd, their marriage day,
Who humbly to their Saviour pray,
To be with them, and to attend:
To be their guest, their Lord and friend.
2 God, who ordain'd our marriage state,
Provides for us in ev'ry fate,
To him is known all we do need,
Our wants he will supply indeed.
3 Should he appear to hide his face,
Yet the rich bounties of his grace
Are ever present, ever near,
Tho' they do not always appear.
4 The truth of this we may be taught:
The miracles that Jesus wrought
In Cana-town of Galilee,
Sufficient proof thereof may be.
5 His counsels and his deep decrees
No eye of human creature sees;
His wond'rous ways are best reveal'd,
Where his dear promise is fulfill'd.
6 O let us then by faith endure!
Till all our trials shall be o'er,
Then by experience we shall know
What Jesus for his friends will do.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.) #XXXV
