NEW! By God's Design -- A Wedding Hymn
This beautiful new wedding text by Laurie Gauger reminds us of God's design for marriage. What a blessing to celebrate the union between husbands and wives!
1 Amid the Garden's trees when time began,
The man and woman meet and join their hands.
There, under the Creator's glowing sun,
Two hearts and lives are woven into one.
Refrain: By God's design a husband and a wife
Will have and hold each other all their life.
2 At Cana's wedding, Jesus is a guest.
He marks the marriage ceremony blest
When he performs his first astounding sign,
Transforming water into wedding wine. Refrain
3 The Savior calls the church his holy bride.
Such love! For her eternal life, he died.
The bride responds in faith for all of time,
"He is my Lord. I'm his, and he is mine." Refrain
4 We pray for all the husbands and the wives.
May kindness fill the corners of their lives
And may they find, as Jesus lights the way,
Forgive-ness and fresh grace for ev'ry day. Refrain
