Father Of The Human Race


Father of the human race,
Sanction with thy heavenly grace
What on earth hath now been done,
That these twain be truly one.

One in sickness and in health,
One in poverty and wealth;
And as year rolls after year,
Each to other still more dear.

One in purpose, one in heart,
Till the mortal stroke shall part;
One in cheerful piety,
One for ever, Lord with thee.
