Blessing of Rings and Ring Exchange

 

 

EXCHANGE OF RINGS:

 

Who has the rings?
Let us Bow Our Heads  ……..  Lord, Hear our Prayer for   (Bride and Groom)                                                               who are today united in marriage before you.  We ask your blessing on these rings, which they give to each other as a symbol of their unending love and devotion for one another.  We ask this in Your name.     Amen

 

 Just as this circle of your rings never ends, so may the love you have for one another never end.
REPEAT:    With this ring, a symbol of my love for you, I thee wed.


#2
The circle is the symbol of the sun, earth, and universe. It is the symbol of peace. Let this ring be the symbol of unity and peace in which your two lives are joined in one unbroken circle. Wherever you go, return unto one another and to your togetherness.
Groom, place the ring on Bride’s finger and repeat after me:
I give you this ring to wear upon your hand as a symbol of our unity and steadfast love.
Bride, place the ring on Groom’s finger and repeat after me:
I give you this ring to wear upon your hand as a symbol of our unity in steadfast love.

I give you this ring as a sign of our marriage.
With my body and soul I honor you.
All that I am I give to you.
And all that I have I share with you.

With this ring, I thee wed. I accept you as my wife, I endow you with all my worldly goods, I acknowledge you as my life partner. You are my love.
