The Wedding Prayer


Lord, let me be his sunshine when the skies are dark and gray,
Let me be his comfort when he's had a long, hard day.
Let me be a shelter when the wind is harsh and cold.
Let me be submissive when the rest on earth are bold.

Lord, let me be her fortress in the face of every storm.
Let me, in a calloused world; be sensitive and warm.
Let me be her leader when there's weakness all around.
Let me be her hero when all others let her down.

Lord, let me be a pillow when he's tired and needs a rest.
Let me be assurance when he's faced with some hard test.
Let me listen softly when the world is pressing in.
Let me understand when no one else can comprehend.

Lord, let me be her pillar when she needs somewhere to lean.
Let me be committed with a heart that's true and clean.
Let me be attentive when there's something on her mind.
Let me lead her wisely when an answer's hard to find.

Lord, let me walk beside him when he needs to have a friend.
Let me be something real in a world of false pretense.
Let me sing sweet music when his heart's without a song.
Let me be his loving joy each moment, all day long.

Lord, let me leave the pressures of the day outside my door.
Lord, let me be unselfish always willing to give more.
Let my love be real to her each moment, all the time.
Lord Jesus, make me worthy of the hand I hold in mine.
