Lover's Prayer


Almighty God, we join our hands... And lift our eyes to You
... Give us the sunshine of the day... And let us have the light
... Of every moon and silver star... To keep our courtship
bright...Help us to plan the days ahead... With prudence
and with care... And with the fervent constancy... To sympa-
thize and share... Let virtue guide our every step... And teach
our souls to live... In readiness to sacrifice... And promptness
to forgive... And when our lips pronounce the vows... That
bring us heart to heart... Let there be nothing on this earth...
To draw our love apart.
