the joys of being coupled

So, we leave our parent’s house
and are told to cleave to our spouse.
And then what?

We can establish our names
with children or with fame
We can gladden our hearts with wine
or with music.
We can desire all that is graceful,
and be smitten by what’s beautiful too,
be happy for chance encounters with friends,
and in distressing times, the help they extend.
Plus, we may even stand firm on gold and silver.

But as we’ve said, “I do”,
We know Thy Way is even more true.
And so, isn’t it better that we say this too?

“We Will Be Blameless”
“We Will Seek Wisdom”
“We Will Speak Pleasantly”
“We Will Happily Sow Seeds”
“We Will Bring Each Other Comfort”
“We Will Give”
“We Will Fear The Lord”
So Our Union Shall Be At Peace
