The Life You Give Is Good

Lyrics as Poetry

The life you give is good, O God,
it thrills the inner soul.
The love you offer fills our hearts
and we’re made truly whole.

For gift of marriage and of love,
for bond that is so strong;
For all that’s brought us to this hour,
Accept our joyful song.

We pledge our selves in holy love,
We give ourselves today.
Grant that this giving may increase
until our dying day.

We’ll laugh together in our joy
and laughing praise your name;
We’ll grieve together, share our tears,
Your healing love we’ll claim.

This love you’ve given us to share
with joy will fill our days.
To friends we’ll from this love reach out
and offer living praise!
