Wedding hymn for Sian and Damien

Our daughter Sian married Damien last weekend at Llanyrafon Methodist Church in Cwmbran and they asked me to write a hymn for the service. This is it. It is written to fit the tune Cwm Rhondda which is normally sung with Guide me, O thou great Jehovah

 

God of love, come claim this momentDamien and Sian

for two lives now bound as one.

As we share this day of gladness

bless this marriage now begun

Give them wisdom

Give them patience

Help them live a life of love

Help them live a life of love

 

 

Perfect love, come grow within them,

in the ordinary tasks.

Every day may Grace be weaving

new surprises, Lord we ask

Give them joy and

understanding

May their love be born of you

May their love be born of you

 

 

Loving God, as we support them,

may our prayers be more than words.

Show us all how love in action

stoops to put another first.

Live within us

by your spirit

Let your love be seen in us

Let your love be seen in us.
