Christ, have mercy upon us.

Lord, have mercy upon us.
UR Father, Who art in heaven, Hallowed

be thy Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive those who trespass against us; And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. Amen.

Minister. O Lord, save thy servant, and thy

handmaid: Answer. Who put their trust in thee. Minister. O Lord, send them help from thy

holy place: Answer. And evermore defend them. Minister. Be unto them a tower of strength: Answer. From the face of their enemy. Minister. Lord, hear our prayer: Answer. And let our cry come unto thee.

Let us pray

O

A

GOD of our fathers, Almighty Lord,

look mercifully upon these thy servants, and bless them; that obeying thy will, and continuing in safety under thy protection, they may abide in thy love so long as they both shall live; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

LMIGHTY God, by whose gracious

blessing all our joys are hallowed; Grant that these thy servants who have promised to love and cherish each other in the bond of matrimony may always abide in thy love, and so advance in the knowledge of the truth that they may be devoted to thee with their whole heart, and may please thee both in will and deed; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

GOD, who hast consecrated the state

of matrimony to such an excellent mystery, that in it is signified and represented the spiritual marriage and unity betwixt Christ and his Church; Look mercifully upon these thy servants, that they may love, honour, and cherish one another, and so live together in faithfulness and patience, in wisdom and true godliness, that their home may be a haven of blessing and of peace; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who

O

liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy
Spirit ever, one God, world without end.
Amen.
Then shall the Priest say,

HE Almighty and Merciful Lord bless

and sanctify you, and pour upon you the fulness of his grace; that ye may please him both in body and soul, and live together in holy love unto your life's end. Amen.
