Hymn 68

HYMN LXVIII.

Great God, who form'd for social joys
Our natures by thy power and grace,
And join'd in blest connubial ties,
The parents of our favour'd race.

Our Saviour, our ascended Lord,
In Cana once a heavenly guest,
Whose bounty cheer'd the friendly board
Whose presence grac'd the nuptial feast.

Attend with smiles of heavenly love,
The pair thy sacred laws combine;
Their union bless, their vows approve,
And crown the rises with grace divine.

Let love assist their mutual toils,
And every social bliss bestow;
Increase each joy with friendly smiles,
And share and soften every woo.

While each a kindly aid imparts,
To run secure the heavenly race;
And make their dwelling and their hearts,
Perpetual temples of thy praise.

When death dissolves these sacred ties,
May each to happier realms remove;
There meet and range the peaceful skies,
In bands of everlasting love.

And make their dwelling and their hearts,
Perpetual temples of thy praise.

When death dissolves these sacred ties,
May each to happier realms remove;
There meet and range the peaceful skies,
In bands of everlasting love.
