The Wedding Song
by Alberta Fisher
(This song should be sung to the tune of “What a Friend We Have in Jesus”. It was used for my parents’ fortieth wedding anniversary but can also be used for any anniversary just by substituting the year in the place of the underlined words.)
We have gathered here together
On your fortieth wedding day
‘Tis a day of great rejoicing
Therefore, to our God, we pray.
Thank Him for the many blessings
Which He has bestowed on you.
Though some days were dark and dreary
Jesus helped you safely through.
Forty years you have been wedded
Years of joy and grief and care,
Happy in the days of sunshine,
Dark days too, you’ve had your share.
Heart and hand you held together
Trav’ling through the years of life
Every trusting in the Savior
Faithfully as man and wife.
Now may God His blessings shower
In the years to come, we pray,
Upon you and your dear children
May He guide you all the way.
Shield you from all grief and sorrow,
Grant you joy and happiness,
Trusting, Faithful in your Savior
Oh, then you’ll be truly blessed.
