Since Jesus freely did appear

To grace a mar-riage feast;

O Lord, we ask thy presence here,

To make a wedding guest.

Upon the bridal pair look down,

Who now have plighted hands;

Their union with thy favor crown,

And bless the nutptial bands.

With gifts of grace their hearts endow,

Of all rich dowries best;

Their substance bless, and peace bestow,

To sweeten all the rest.

In purest love their souls unite,

That they with Christian care,

May make domestic burdens light,

By taking mutual share.
