    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.

    Chorus

    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 my children’s children’s children will be blessed

    will 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.

    Chorus

    Chorus

    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.
