At Cana’s wedding, long ago

At Cana's wedding, long ago,
they knew his presence by this sign,
a virtue none but Christ could show,
to turn their water into wine:
and still on us his blessing be
as in the days of Galilee.

What if the way be far to go
and life at times a weary load?
Yet may our hearts within us glow
as theirs on that Emmaus road:
the risen Christ become our guest,
with him to walk, in him to rest.

O Lord of all our life below,
O risen Lord of realms above,
eternal joy be ours1 to know,
united in the bond of love:
one in the faith, with one accord,
one with each other and the Lord.

1 I have altered the original "theirs" to "ours" to make this text appropriate for general use and not just at weddings. (Steve Benner+)
