Refrain: Alleluia! Praise to the Lord, To us he has given his love; Alleluia! Praise to the Lord, His blessings pour down from above. As we dedicate ourselves to you and give our lives to each other, We thank you for the love we found when you brought us together. (Refrain) We praise you, Lord, for your wondrous gifts, for lives we pledge to share; We ask you now to bless us both and make us one in your care. (Refrain)
