Marriage for Eternity


Marriage for Eternity

Seminary Music: Old Testament

1. Like Rebekah, I shall forsake the rest

To marry in the covenant and meet the Lord’s request.

I’ll nurture valiant children and teach them of the plan.

That my children’s children’s children may be blessed,

May be blessed as only the righteous can.

Marriage for eternity

Blesses my posterity

As each branch of our tree turned upward unto thee,

Growing upward, forever in Thee

 

2. Like Isaac, I’ll follow and prepare

To marry in the covenant, eternal blessings share.

I’ll teach to all my children the power of the plan,

That their children’s children’s children may be blessed,

Will be blessed as only the righteous can.

Marriage for eternity Blesses my posterity

As each branch of out tree turned upward unto thee

Growing upward, forever, in Thee

Marriage for eternity

Blesses my posterity

As each branch of our tree turned upward unto thee,

Growing upward, forever in Thee.

Growing upward, forever in Thee.
