The vision of you is like            the sun on the horizon
which light        does set upon the brow of thought
the midsummer's buds                bring forth the harvest
the treasure of            mine heart within are caught
Such a love         descends upon a mortal breast
to be exercised         in span of shorted life
where hope does soar           like a bird aflight
such sails      hold the winds of bonded wife
Entwined upon our souls       does hold its rope  
The chords of Love the spirits     promise that you gave  
for therein it is        braids like upon us hope
to care for each other        like humbled slave
It declares your love       to those your favors chose
whose intercourse of cares      upon all alight
the final numbers of all          the called to wed
the seal of your love               by a messengers invite
Cast upon us are all       the reasons for this course
to trod its path    is the faithful map to true
to all our sins and failings          which we divorce
and its purity of heart           is joined to you
All of its secrets to your beloved     you revealed
and saved us by             the knowledge of its depth
that it be patterned        to the nature unconcealed 
gives eternity                 to true loves life and breath
I will enter the temple with rejoicing 
among your judges       we will find our place
what we have suffered         like an irritation
that we might give you          our obeisance and grace
You have looked upon         the oppressed and lowly
who have shown           the justice of your King
with patience       have faced all their afflictions
and know your peace           upon the earth will ring
