Tobiah and Sarah on the Wedding Night

A video segment from dress rehearsal last year. “Raphael Binds the Demon” plus “Marriage Prayer.”

TOBIAH

Blessed are you. God of our ancestors, blessed forever is your holy name.
Let the heavens praise you, and all your creation for evermore.

SARAH

The Lord our God told Adam it is not good to be alone; a partner I will make for you.

TOBIAH

So Eve was made from Adam’s side to be his help and support.
And as it was for them, so it is for us tonight.

SARAH (with TOBIAH)

Blessed are you. God of our ancestors, blessed forever is your holy name.
Let the heavens praise you, and all your creation for evermore.

TOBIAH

I do not take my beloved for lust or for possession: I take her in singleness of heart.

SARAH

This one, O God, at long last, is bones of my bones and flesh of my flesh.

TOBIAH (with SARAH)

Blessed are you. God of our ancestors, blessed forever is your holy name.
Let the heavens praise you, and all your creation for evermore.

So a man must leave his parents

SARAH

and cling to his wife

TOBIAH & SARAH

And so we two become one body.
Send down your mercy on us and allow us to live together to a happy old age, Amen, Amen.

SARAH (with TOBIAH)

Blessed are you. God of our ancestors, blessed forever is your holy name.
Let the heavens praise you, and all your creation for evermore. Amen.
