1 As man and woman we were made
that love be found and life begun,
so praise the Lord Who made us two,
and praise the Lord when two are one;
praise for the love that comes to life
through child or parent, husband, wife.
2 Now Jesus lived and gave his love
to make our life and loving new;
so celebrate with him today
and drink the joy he offers you,
that makes the simple moment shine
and changes water into wine.
3 And Jesus died to live again,
so praise the love that, come what may,
can bring the dawn and clear the skies,
and waits to wipe all tears away;
and let us hope for what shall be,
believing where we cannot see.
4 Then spread the table, clear the hall,
and celebrate till day is done;
let peace go deep between us all
and joy be shared by everyone;
laugh and make merry with your friends,
and praise the love that never ends!
