With Grateful Hearts And Tuneful Lays


With grateful hearts and tuneful lays
We sing before th’ eternal throne,
And offer up our humble praise,
To him whose name is God alone.

At this auspicious hour draw near,
And shed thy richest blessings down;
Fill every heart with love sincere,
And all thy faithful mercies crown.

Grant now thy presence, gracious Lord,
And hearken to our fervent prayer;
The nuptial vow in heaven record,
And bless the newly-married pair.

Oh, guide them safe this desert through,
‘Mid all the cares of life and love;
May they with joy thy glories view
In the eternal world of love.
