Two Lives Become One

As two lives become one
May the Father above
Bless our hearts and our home
With an abundance of love.

As two lives become one
And we pledge to each other
Our hearts intertwined
Professing love for one another.

As two lives become one
Let no one come between
And may God richly bless
A future, He has already seen.

I do

The moment I set my eyes on you,

I knew God answered my prayers.
And when you said “I do”,
I know God made me to love you.

Sacred Matrimony

A hundred brides walk the aisle everyday,
and look at their grooms with either joy or dismay.
What is life in store for me?
Will I be happy? Will I be glee?

Only one thing be in mind.
God gave the husbands to love their wives.
God gave the wives to love their husbands.
A happy ending is all that should ever be
during this most sacred matrimony.

M.S. Lowndes

How little we know in our growing years?

Protected by our loved ones from woes and fears.

We continue to grow from our past.
Searching for a new love one that will last.

Accentuated by our social being to find one with to share.
We take our wedding vows to show the world we care.
A family is next to sustain our marriage and fortify our love.
To succeed this human experience needs to be blessed from above.

We think back how easy it was to say, ‘I do’
But it was your conviction, good foundation and character that seen you through.
Each years number large or small celebrate your anniversary none the less.
For the greater the number the greater the the success.

Theodore Colterelli

Our Wedding Day

On this our wedding day,
We are uniting to become one.
The journey of a lifetime
Has only just begun.

With family and friends present
We vow to live by faith,
And trust in God’s provision
With every step we take

For only by His goodness
Can we selflessly show our love
Striving to live exemplary lives
To point to the Father above.

A Godly Marriage

Bridesmaids and groomsmen, plans coming together
As we prepare to begin our forever.

The flowers, the dress, tuxedos and rings,
All the excitement a wedding day begins.

As God is our witness may our union reflect
The beauty of a marriage that only God can direct.

United Hearts

God has brought you here together
To be united in His love,
Joined in Holy Matrimony
With faith in God above

Let your faith guide your lives
With a measure of God’s grace,
For this is what keeps love strong
Through whatever you may face

Keep building your marriage on
The foundation of Christ,
It will not crumble or give way
Through the daily pressures of life

But it will stand the test of time,
Growing stronger day by day
Just keep your hearts truly united,
Joined as one when you pray

The cord that binds your hearts
Will not fray, or break in two
When you build your lives on God,
He will walk with you.

M.S. Lowndes

Mother of the Bride Poem

My sweet little girl
All grown up and polished
The years have flown by
Look what you have accomplished

My sweet little girl
What a blessing you are,
As youre betrothed to your husband
May your love take you far.

My sweet little girl
Becoming one with another
May God bless you and keep you
Love always, your Mother.

For Better or For Worst

Dear God,
bless this marriage with love.
The kind of love that is unbreakable
and gives no condition.

Give this marriage a chance
to outlive even the longest of lives.
Give the lovely couple to share
their lives and love with one another.

Teach them to stick to one another
even when the going is tough.
Let their love be stronger
and be with one another
for better or for worst.

Poem by a 12th Century Nobleman

True Love is a sacred flame that burns eternally.
And none can dim its special glow or change its destiny.
True Love speaks in tender tones and hears with gentle ear.
True Love gives with open heart and True Love conquers fear.

True Love makes no harsh demands. It neither rules nor binds.
True Love holds with gentle hands the hearts that it entwines.

You dont marry the person you can live with,
you marry the person you can’t live without .

The Art of a Good Marriage

“The little things are the big things.
It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say “I love you” at least once a day.
It is never going to sleep angry.

“It is never taking the other for granted;
the courtship should not end with the honeymoon,
it should continue through all the years.

“It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
It is standing together facing the world.
It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.

“It is doing things for each other,
not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice,
but in the spirit of joy.

“It is speaking words of appreciation
and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is not expecting the husband to wear a halo
or the wife to have wings of an angel.

“It is not looking for perfection in each other.
It is cultivating flexibility, patience,
understanding and a sense of humor.

“It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow.
It is finding room for the things of the spirit.
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.

“It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal,
dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal.
It is not only marrying the right partner,
it is being the right partner.”

Wilferd Arlan Peterson

Bridal Song

Comforts lasting, loves increasing,
Like soft hours never ceasing:
Plenty’s pleasure, peace complying,
Without jars, or tongues envying;

Hearts by holy union wedded,
More than theirs by custom bedded;
Fruitful issues; life so graced,
Not by age to be defaced,

Budding, as the year ensu’th,
Every spring another youth:
All what thought can add beside
Crown this bridegroom and this bride!

John Ford

Two Loves

Two loves came up a long, wide aisle,
And knelt at a low, white gate;
One tender and true, with a shyest smile,
One strong, true and elate.

Two lips spoke in a firm true way,
And two lips answered soft and low;
In one true hand such a little hand lay
Fluttering, frail as a flake of snow.

One stately head bent humble there,
Stilled were the throbbings of human love;
One head drooped down like a lily fair,

Two prayers went, wing to wing, above.
God blest them both in the holy place,
Long brief moment till the rite was done;
On the human love fell a heavenly grace,
Making two hearts forever one.

Between two lengthening rows of smiles,
One sweetly shy, one proud, elate,
Two loves passed down the long wide aisle
Will they ever forget the low white gate?

Father Abram J. Ryan

In this Union

Give this union a real form of love,
that no one can break and will never do.
Give this union joy so they may not find
it other worldly pleasures.
Give this union all that they need
so they may not seek what is not necessary.

In this union, may there be unconditional love
like You have shown us.
In this union, may there be friendship
even after a day of camaraderie.
In this union, may everything be treated with fairness
in this world of judgement.

Wedding Day Poem

Yes, I am enchanted with you,
My new wonderful mate of mine,
You are my enchantment rose
To bond and hold with love.

Where “L” in love stands for laughter
Where “O” in love stands for obedience
Where “V” in love stands for victory after
And “E” in love stands for enchantment.

This day with you, we do cast
A new family, we do plant
In the parents network of our past
We grow generations to implant.

Yes, I am enchanted with you
And promise with God’s help
To love and serve you always
All the many years left to us.

We both have one great friend,
It is Jesus our lord and guide,
Let us agree to always turn to him
Each day, for steady guidance and help.

Yes, I am enchanted with you,
My new wonderful mate of mine,
You are my enchantment rose
To bond and hold with love.

Henry E. Henrich

Loving Each Other

The Lord taught us to love our neighbours.
He said to love even those who have hurt us.
Today, I profess to the world how much
I love this man with all my heart.

Bless this union, dear God,
that we only show kindness and purity
to one another. Give us the strength
to never let anyone down.
Loving each other is the best kind of love
especially since You are in the center of us.

God’s Gift of True Love

Many people search for love high and low
Some people find it in first sight.
But I believe that God has a plan
and that includes you for true love.

Bless the Father’s name for showing the way
to you and share a life that I’ve never imagined.
His name deserves all the glory
for the greatness He has showed me.
