Hymn: O perfect love


P. The Lord God in his goodness created us male and female, and by the gift of marriage founded human community in a joy that begins now and is brought to perfection in the life to come.

A. My christian brothers and sisters, let us listen to Gods blessing in the order of marriage.

The Lord God said: It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an helpmeet for him.

Our Lord Jesus Christ said: What threfore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

The Apostle Paul, speaking by the Holy Spirit, saith: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the Church, and gave himself for it. Wives, submit yourselves unto your husbands, as unto the Lord; for the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the Head of the Church.

P. Eric and Anne, if it is your intention to share with each other your joys and sorrows and all the years will bring, with your promises bind yourselves to each other as husband and wife.

The congregation stands.

The bride and groom face each other and join hands. Each, in turn, promises faithfulness to the other in these words, the groom first:

I take you ....................

to be my wife from this day forward,

to join with you and share all that is to come,

and I promise to be faitful to you

until death parts us.

And now the bride:

I take you ....................

to be my husband from this day forward,

to join with you and share all that is come,

and I promise to be faithful to you

until death parts us.

The bride and groom exchange rings with these words:

.................... , I give you this ring as a sign of my love and faithfulness.

.................... , I give you this ring as a sign of my love and faithfulness.

The bride and groom join hands, and the minister announces their marriage by saying:

Eric and Anne, by their promises before God and in the presence of this congregation, have bound themselves to one another as husband and wife.

C. Blessed be the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit now and forever.

P. Those whom God has joined together let no one put asunder.

The congregation may sit. The bride and groom kneel.

P. The Lord God, who created our first parents and established them in marriage, establish and sustain you, that you may find delight in each other and grow in holy love until you life's end.

C. Amen.

Let us say the Lord's prayer everyone in respectiv language....

The Lord bless you and keep you.

The Lord make his face shine on you

and be gracious to you.
