O God of love, to thee we bow

O God of love, to thee we bow,
and pray for these before thee now,
that, closely knit in holy vow,
they may in thee be one.

Whatever comes to be their share
of quickening joy or burdening care,
in power to do and grace to bear,
may they in thee be one.

Eternal love, with them abide;
through change and chance be thou their guide,
let nothing in this life divide
those whom thou makest one.
