This day we come to celebrate (Hymn)


This day we come to celebrate
the love that calls uniting;
a gift from God that is so great,
two joining, with rejoicing.

Deep love, together bind these two;
their paths be shared, one journey!
Beginnings new, come breaking through,
and fade the doubts that may be.

With loving hearts, they give to share,
uniting hopes and visions;
commitment here they now declare
with joyous celebrations.

O God of love, give rich blessing
upon love that embraces
and may your presence in loving
be cherished in all places.
