Marriage takes Three

Marriage Takes Three

I once thought marriage took

Just Two to make a go,

But now I am convinced

It takes the Lord also.

And not one marriage fails

Where Christ is asked to enter

As lovers come together

With Jesus at the center.

But marriage seldom thrives,

And homes are incomplete,

till He is welcomed there

To help avoid defeat.

In homes where Christ is first

It's obvious to see,

Those unions really work,

For marriage still takes three.

Perry Tanksley 1984
