We have come to celebrate
Your Diamond Wedding Day.
To show to you our love and respect,
To rejoice with you and pray.
Memories will come flooding
On this, your anniversary;
Times of joy and gladness,
Indifferent health, adversity.
Sometimes your burdens felt
As you walked along life's road
But Jesus was always by your side
Willing to ease your load.
You have known showers of
That God has poured upon you;
Children to love, lead and to train,
Beloved grandchildren, too.
Many changes you have seen
During sixty years of life together,
But Jesus Christ, he is the same,
Yesterday, to-day, forever.
This is the time when life
Looking back, assessing to-day,
Looking forward to serving him
Until you come to the end of the way.
