    Default for wedding....

    Does anyone know of or have a poem about Christ that would be appropriate for a wedding? I would like for it to reflect that Christ will be the head of our marriage. I have had no luck in this so far so any help would be appreciated.

    Ephesians 5: 23-24

    5:23For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.

    5:24Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.


    Matthew 19

    19:4"Haven't you read," he replied, "that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female,'

    19:5and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh'?

    19:6So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate."

    1 Corinthians 7

    7:3The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband.

    7:4The wife's body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband's body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife.

    Eph. 5:29-32

    After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the Church-for we are members of His body. "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." This is profound mystery-but I am talking about Christ and the Church.

    Some thoughts on Christian marriage:

    When the pastor spoke at our wedding, he didn't have a poem, and I don't think he even used scriptures (no video of the wedding, and 25 years has blurred my memory somewhat) He simply spoke of the vase symbolizing the home that we were creating, the white rose representing Christ- the only pure sacrifice and the head of the family, the taller red rose representing my husband as the head of the household, and the smaller red rose representing me- and both my dh and I covered in Christ's blood. He did a great presentation, but it's pretty much lost to memory now.

    A Marriage Prayer
    by Connie Hinnen Cook

    Lord, be in this marriage
    In a special way,
    May we feel Your presence
    Each and every day.

    Grant us both good humor
    To surpass our coming years;
    May there always be much laughter,
    May there always be less tears.

    Give us strength and courage
    To follow in Your will,
    To trust You in the valley
    As we do upon the hill.

    Give us both the eyes of love
    So we'll always see
    The goodness in each other,
    Secure us, Lord, in Thee.

    Give us words of kindness, Lord,
    Help us both to live
    So our lips are ever quick
    In saying, "I forgive."

    Give us hearts that beat as one,
    Bind us ever near;
    May our love grow deeper, Lord,
    With each passing year.

    Lord, be in this marriage,
    Keep our love brand new;
    May we love each other, Lord,
    The same way that *You* do.
