To Such Is Blessed Blest Their Marriage

To such is bless’d, their marriage day,
Who humbly to their Saviour pray,
To be with them, and to attend:
To be their guest, their Lord and friend.

God, who ordain’d our marriage state,
Provides for us in ev’ry fate,
To him is known all we do need,
Our wants he will supply indeed.

Should he appear to hide his face,
Yet the rich bounties of his grace
Are ever present, ever near,
Tho’ they do not always appear.

The truth of this we may be taught:
The miracles that Jesus wrought
In Cana-town of Galilee,
Sufficient proof thereof may be.

His counsels and his deep decrees
No eye of human creature sees;
His wond’rous ways are best reveal’d,
Where his dear promise is fulfill’d.

O let us then by faith endure!
Till all our trials shall be o’er,
Then by experience we shall know
What Jesus for his friends will do.
