Lyrics:
1.  The grace of life is theirs
    Who on this wedding day
    Delight to make their vows
    And for each other pray.
    May they, O Lord, together prove
    The lasting joy of Christian love,
    The lasting joy of Christian love.

2.  Where love is, God abides:
    And God shall surely bless
    A home where trust and care
    Give birth to happiness.
    May they, O Lord, together prove
    The lasting joy of such a love,
    The lasting joy of such a love.

3.  And when time lays its hand
    On all we hold most dear,
    And life, by life consumed,
    Fulfills its purpose here,
    May we, O Lord, together prove
    The lasting joy of Christian love,
    The lasting joy of Christian love.
