Almighty and most merciful Father, who hast ordained the holy estate of matrimony to guard, to hallow, and to perfect the sacred gift of love: Look mercifully upon these thy servants whom we now commend to thy protection and care. Forgive them all their sins; keep them ever in thy peace; and grant them grace so to live together in true and enduring affection that the blessing which they have sought this day upon their union may never be withheld; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
