This day we come to celebrate
the love that calls uniting;
a gift from God that is so great,
two joining, with rejoicing.
Deep love, together bind these two;
their paths be shared, one journey!
Beginnings new, come breaking through,
and fade the doubts that may be.
With loving hearts, they give to share,
uniting hopes and visions;
commitment here they now declare
with joyous celebrations.
O God of love, give rich blessing
upon love that embraces
and may your presence in loving
be cherished in all places.
