This baseball game of life
That they try to play
While remaining husband and wife,
As the marriage they try to stay.

Three strikes and you're out!
But Love doesn't see a quick divorce.
He blesses the marriage in a different route,
And they're bound for better or worse.

As into each base they slide,
It is one more step that Love must take
To keep the marriage partners satisfied.
As a stronger marriage He makes.

Behind every good union of couples
While keeping up with today's busy pace,
Although their life is filled with troubles,
They will find umpire Love behind home plate.
