Father in heaven we ask Your blessing

On these who marry and their new life.

Grant them Your favor, join them together,

Strengthen their love as husband and wife.

Give them the wisdom to seek Your kingdom

In words they’re speaking and all they do.

Make their home peaceful in joy and trial.

Teach them to wait while trusting in You.

May they forgive as You have forgiven,

Serving each other, with their prayers heard.

Keep their hearts faithful and vows unbroken,

Far from temptation, near to Your word.

Make them a witness to those who see them,

Showing in marriage Christ and His bride.

Let them be thankful for all You’ve given

Lead them to worship You side-by-side.

Praise to You, Father. Praise to Christ Jesus.

Praise to the Spirit, Holy and true.

Yours is the kingdom, Yours is the power.

Glory forever is all to You.
