1
O LORD, the joy of union,
And Thine embrace, call forth
Our full appreciation
Of Thy surpassing worth.
2
The bride, with Thee in nearness,
Adds lustre to the scene
Where all Thy power and greatness
In headship's place are seen.
3
Th'assembly, Lord, Thy body,
As joined to Thee above,
Responds with deep affection -
At rest in Thy great love.
4
Thus in this blest relation,
With one harmonious strain
We join with adoration,
Thy praises to proclaim.
