Although the song is old, it is still popular and used at Western-style wedding ceremonies in Japan. The rather sombre-sounding 'chorus' is omitted, and John Hugh McNaughton's words, written in 1860, were translated in 1890 as:

Imose wo chigiru, ie no uchi
Waga shu mo tomo ni, itamai te
Chichi naru Kami no, mimune ni nareru
Iwai no mushiro, shuku shima se

Imashi mimae ni, tachi narabi
Musubu chigiri wa, kawara ji na
Yachiyo mo tomo ni, tasuke isoshimi
Magokoro tsukushi, Shu ni tsukaen

Ai no ishizue, kataku sue
Heiwa no hashira, naoku tate
Kami no mimegumi, tsune ni ooeba
Saiwai ie ni, taezara nan

Kiyoki imose no, majiwari wa
Nagusame towa ni, tsuki seji na
Omoni mo sachi mo, tomo ni wakachi te
Yorokobi susume, Shu no michi ni

妹背をちぎる、家のうち

作曲者:John Hugh McNaughton 1829-1901

妹背をちぎる、家のうち
わが主もともに、いたまいて
父なるかみの、みむねになれる
いわいのむしろ、祝しませ

今しみまえに、立ちならび
むすぶちぎりは、かわらじな
八千代も共に、助けいそしみ
まごころつくし、主につかえん

愛のいしずえ、かたく据え
平和のはしら、なおく立て
かみのみめぐみ、常に覆えば
さいわい家に、たえざらなん。

きよき妹背の、まじわりは
なぐさめとわに、尽きせじな
重荷もさちも、共に分かちて
よろこび進め、主のみちに。
