Solemnly they have made their vows
Always to be faithful to each other,
Married in the Lord,
Until He comes for both or one;
Every day of their pilgrimage,
Lord, keep them under Thy hand.

And may they be rewarded,
Now together, for faithfulness
During their time of waiting!

Christ Jesus has come into their lives,
And taken a place in their hearts.
They move forward together,
Having one way of walking,
Eating their daily manna,
Reading the word jointly,
Invoking God as Father,
Nightly entrusting to Him
Every care from the day.

Lord, be their strength and wisdom!
O Holy Spirit, guide them!
Comfort and grace be with them
Knowing the Father’s love!

One man could confront and rend
   the power of death;
One man could carry with ease
   the gates of death;
One man could achieve victory
   by his own death.

If twelve stones from Jordan
   Stand in God’s land,
Twelve stones are set up
   In Jordan’s depths:
All bear witness to the place
Where the ark-bearers’ feet stood.

Under Satan’s assault He picked
Words already written: “Man shall not
Live by bread alone”; “Thou shalt not
Tempt the Lord thy God”; “Do homage
To God alone”.  Who was better qualified
To forge new answers?  But as Man
According to God He used God’s words.

It needed another sacrifice to
Portray something inherent in
One sacrifice; distinctive in
Subjection Christ; His the side
From which flowed not only
Blood, but water’s cleansing.
