“Pleasantness and Praise”
A wedding prayer for a young couple: the groom’s name is Noam which means “pleasantness” and the bride’s name is Tehilla which mean “praise”.
Braid my life to thine I pray …
I seek thy love forever mine.
Our family will be, we vow to Thee,
a home unto His glory divine.
I promise all I am, to thee I give,
stand with me on this, His sacred altar.
Wedded today in our oneness become …
open Thine hand when we falter.
As days become years, many may we merit,
favor our bountiful works, our hands need strengthen.
From the corners of fields, gleanings to harvest,
cherish us in life so our days do lengthen.
Pleasantness and Praise may your life be enriched,
v’shinantam levanecha v’debarta bam … *
every day in your service to Him ...
may Noam love Tehilla and Tehilla … Noam.
