“Marriage for Eternity,” New Era, Sept. 1993, 10–11

In Tune:

Marriage for Eternity

Moderatly

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.
