Be our Chief Guest, Lord (Tune of ‘Morning has Broken’)

  1. Be our chief guest, Lord,
    Lord of all living,
    Lord of all loving,
    this wedding day:
    Bind us together
    in your sure keeping,
    so we may never
    wander away.
  1. Bless all who have brought us
    up from our childhood,
    caring, forgiving,
    through the long day:
    May the same spirit
    shine in our home, Lord,
    lighting our pathway,
    we humbly pray.
  1. Bless all our friends, Lord,
    happy and true friends,
    laughing or crying,
    always the same:
    Bright with this friendship,
    may our own home be
    ready to welcome
    all in your name.
  1. Be our chief guest, Lord,
    Lord of all living,
    warm with compassion
    showing the way:
    Keep us together
    in loving service,
    families and friends, Lord,
    this wedding day.
