1 Praised be the Father, Lord, our God of grace,
sovereign in your faithful covenant embrace.
From this day together, make our love endure,
ever self-effacing, passionate, and pure.
Praised be the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Glorious the wonder promised us today.
2 Praised be the Christ, the risen Lord of light,
holy revelation, God's and our delight.
Lover of your people, close as husband, wife:
work in us the secret re-created life. Refrain
3 Praised be the Spirit, present everywhere.
Pour out all your blessings: wisdom, truth, and prayer.
Softly breathe the power binding two to one;
comfort, strengthen, prosper this new home begun. Refrain
