As We Become One

For my wife Brenda

The time has come for us to stand before God
And unite as husband and wife
Take the vows of marriage true to our hearts
And honor each other for life
Stand before witness and all of mankind
Reaching out to each other with love
Asking for a blessing for our marriage long last
And asking for that blessing from God above
For as God made the moon, the sun and the sea
With the nights for the moon as the days with the sun
So he also made you, my love, for me
For there you stand as we become one
