People often look for engagement card verses because they’d like to include something that captures a feeling or sentiment.
For those who consider marriage a sacred and religious act, bible verses are often most appropriate. For others, spirituality or love is more in keeping with what they had in mind. While others still, want something romantic, funny, or just plain clever.
All are appropriate in their own way. Verses that can be included in an engagement card or even in an announcement are as varied as the couple themselves.
Here are some of the more commonly used verses.
Bible Verses For Engagement Cards
These are the more commonly used Bible verses for cards and announcements:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast,
it is not proud. It is not rude,
it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Through love serve one another.
Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work:
If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!
Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
Place me like a seal over your heart,
like a seal on your arm;
for love is as strong as death,
its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
like a mighty flame.
Many waters cannot quench love;
rivers cannot wash it away.
If one were to give
all the wealth of his house for love,
it would be utterly scorned.
Song of Solomon 8:6-7
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another.
Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Love Verses For Engagement Cards
These engagement card verses focus purely on love, an emotion that’s often hard to capture in our own words. If none of them seem quite right, take a look at our engagement poems, which work equally well for cards.
Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
Robert A. Heinlein
Inside the heart of each and every one of us there is a longing to be understood by someone who really cares. When a person is understood, he or she can put up with almost anything in the world.
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.
Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
When someone else’s happiness is your happiness, that is love.
Lana Del Ray
Love is keeping the promise anyway.
The sight of lovers feedeth those in love.
