reflect your glory in our marriages

Holy God
You are love expressed
   The Father loving the Son and Spirit
   The Son loving the Father and Spirit
   The Spirit loving the Father and Son
Glorious!

When our marriage is in Christ
Your vibrant love is reflected
   Christ loving the husband and wife
   The husband loving Christ and his wife
   The wife loving Christ and her husband
also glorious.

Teach us how to place our marriages in Christ
   our union vitally joined to Yours,
   so that your triune love and glory
   might be most completely revealed
   and proclaimed to the world.

For no one ever hates his own body,
but he nourishes and tenderly cares for it,
just as Christ does for the church,
because we are members of his body.
“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother
and be joined to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”
This is a great mystery,
and I am applying it to Christ and the church.
