Awake, my soul!
Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn.
I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing praises to you among the nations.
For your steadfast love is as high as the heavens;
Your faithfulness extends to the clouds.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens.
Let your glory be over all the earth.
Song of Songs 8:6
Set me as a seal upon your heart,
as a seal upon your arm.

Hymn 201


by C.D. af Wirsén (1842-1912); music: W. Åhlén (1894-1982); translation: Carolyn and Kenneth Jennings

The earth adorned in verdant robe
Sends praises upward surging,
While soft winds breathe on fragrant flowers
From winter now emerging.
The sun shines bright
Gives warmth and light
To budding blossoms tender,
Proclaiming summer's splendour.
From out the wood, the birds now sing
And each its song now raises,
To join with all the Universe
In voicing thankful praises.
With hope and joy
Their songs employ
A rapturous exultation
In praise of God's creation.
O God, amid these joys of life,
Creation's glory beaming,
Grant us the grace to keep your word
And live in love redeeming.
All flesh is grass,
The flowers fade,
And time is fleeting ever;
God's word remains forever.

Act of Praise


Marvellous and wonderful is your creation oh Lord.
You have created man and woman
to live in your love.
We give thanks and praise you Lord
for the unceasing renewal of life.

Words of Introduction

Bible Reading


Matthew 19:4-6
The Creator who made them at the beginning made them
male and female and said, "For this reason a man shall leave
his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two
shall become one flesh." Therefore what God has joined
together, let no one separate.

Romans 12:9-10, 15
Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is
good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one
another in showing honour. Rejoice with those who rejoice,
weep with those who weep.

First letter of John 4:7
Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God;
everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

Galatians 6:2
Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfil
the law of Christ.

Ephesians 3:16-17
I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, God may
grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being
with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell
in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and
grounded in love.

* The Questions

* Blessing of the Rings

* The Exchange of Vows and Rings

* The Announcement


In the presence of God and before this congregation
you have made your vows to one another.
I therefore proclaim that you are husband and wife.
May the Lord be with you and lead you
in his truth now and always.

"Resting blissfully in your arms"


Music Benny Andersson (1946-); text: Kristina Lugn (1948-) (First performance)

Original text:
Sjön vilar tätt mot stranden.
Himlen oändligt blå.
Jag står med dig i handen.
Mörkret faller. Och du lyser så.

Vinden vill famna skogen.
Havet ger vågen ro.
Vännen vill vara trogen.
Där du vandrar vill min längtan bo.

Det är kärleken som bär
min förtröstan genom livet.
Så jag söker dig, jag ropar överallt ditt namn
tills jag är i din famn; vilar glad i din famn.
Vilar glad. I din famn.

Nära vill jag vara.
Lugn vid din varma själ.
Jag är en barnsång bara.
Den är enkel och menar så väl.

Det är kärleken som bär
min förtröstan genom livet
Så jag söker dig, jag ropar överallt ditt namn
tills jag är i din famn;
Vilar glad. I din famn.

Intercession

The Lord's Prayer


To be prayed in one's own language

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
forever and ever. Amen.

The Blessing

Hymn 84b


by E. A. Welch (1860-1932); adapted by A. Frostenson (1906-2006); music: M. Teschner (1584-1635)

We lift our hearts, O Father, in mingled prayer and praise.
Praise for the priceless blessing of love's response to love.
Praise for the joy of loving, all other joys above,
that each be one with other, and both be one in You.

We praise you and we pray for home and future life. Your love
has made them one, now keep them ever close. Our prayer
that you'll accomplish the promise of today, and crown their
years with blessings as time will pass away.

The Address to the Bridal Couple by the Archbishop

When You Tell the World You´re Mine


by Jörgen Elofsson (1962-); music: Jörgen Elofsson, John Lundvik (1983-) (First performance)

I'm standing by an angel
tears well up inside
feelings of belonging
Of gratitude and pride

I'm blinded by your presence
In this moment that we're in
If God was to describe you
Where would he begin
Your colours blend together
And you become the light
If only you could see the way you shine
Darling, when you tell the world you're mine

You're the future I believe in
I know you, through and through
Your each and every heartbeat, every breath
Eveytime I look at you

I'm blinded by your presence
In this moment that we're in
If God was to describe you
Where would he begin
Your colours blend together
And you become the light
If only you could see the way you shine
Darling, when you tell the world you're mine

You're mine, against all odds my love
What we have, it is unbreakable

If God was to describe you
Where would he begin...

I'm blinded by your presence
In this moment that we´re in
If God was to describe you
Where would he begin
Your colours blend together
And you become the light
If only you could see the way you shine
Darling, when you tell the world you're mine

I'm standing by an angel...
