1. Lord Jesus, let Thy favour rest
Upon this bond of love;
May it be bound in heaven, and blest
With blessing from above.
2. Thy ways, Thou heavenly Bridegroom, be
The pattern for this pair;
Their constant springs be found in Thee,
Their life Thy love declare.
3. As fellow-heirs of life in Thee,
May they together dwell;
Their mutual faith and love still be
A sweet refreshing well.
4. And when the day of light shall shine,
Their work approvèd be;
Thou them with joy wilt own as Thine,
Whate’er was done to Thee.
