|1 How sweet to travel the road ahead
for two desiring to be together,
for joy is double when we are wed,
and sorrow's stormwinds much lighter to weather.
How sweetly valid
to travel married, to travel married
when we are carried
on wings of love. On wings of love.
2 How great the comfort is here bestowed
when two as one are secure united;
and that which carries the heaviest load
is Iove's heart—flame in two hearts ignited:
as one together
that none shall sever,:l:
with yes for ever
from heart to heart.:l:
3 How wonderful to entrust our love
to God in this our celebration,
whose boundless mercy flows from above
to this and to ev‘ry generation.
ln grateful pleasure
we cannot measure,:l:
how great the treasure
of God's good grace.:I:
4 When two at length must then parted be,
how sad the days are of grief and sighing;
but God be praised for the pledge that He
prepares a country for love undying.
How great the pleasure,
beyond all measure,:I:
the greatest treasure
is endless love.:l:
5 Each married couple whose love is blessed
in Jesus‘ name at their festive wedding,
through all this life's ebb and flow may rest
in Him, as wider His love is spreading.
He will inspire
their hearts‘ desire :I:
to share the fire
of love, true love :I:
