IN THANKSGIVING FOR 52 YEARS TOGETHER

 
We thank you, most gracious God, for consecrating our marriage in Christ's Name and presence.  Lead us further in companionship with each other and with you.  Give us grace to live together in love and fidelity, with care for one another.  Strengthen us all our days, and bring us to that holy table where, with those we love, we will feast forever in our heavenly home; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

ONLY YOU
Only you can make this world seem right
Only you can make the darkness bright
Only you and you alone
Can thrill me like you do
And fill my heart with love for only you

Only you can make this change in me
For it's true, you are my destiny
When you hold my hand
I understand the magic that you do
You're my dream come true
My one and only you

Only you can make this change in me
For it's true, you are my destiny
When you hold my hand
I understand the magic that you do
You're my dream come true
My one and only you
Not Shakespeare, of course, but very nice for slow-dancing back in the day.
