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,
And lovers come together with God's Word at the center.
But marriage never thrives and homes are incomplete,
Until the Word lives there to help avoid each defeat.
In homes where God's Word is first it's obvious to see,
Those unions really work, for marriage still takes three.
