today we have gathered here on one accord
to celebrate this union orchestrated by the Lord
a marriage, that state of matrimony what our people call 'jumping the broom"
for Aleshia Zaneta, the beautiful bride and Trevor Anthony, the handsome groom
marriage is not to be taken lightly it requires a whole lot of labor
just always love and respect each other as you already have God's favor
you're evenly yoked in your faith and true disciples of Christ
remember in all things to put God first and let Him guide your lives
as a husband Trevor your role is to protect, respect and support
and never to answer that question, "honey, do I look fat in these shorts?"
as a wife Aleshia your role is to encourage, respect and keep the home neat
and train your new husband Trevor not to leave up the toilet seat
whenever I'm in the presence of the both of you
I see the love you have for each other emanating through
and when I happen to see you gazing into each other's eyes
I see the wonder on your faces that God has given you this love prize
It's May thirtieth in the year two thousand nine and we'll never forget this date
for that's when we witnessed a union of love which is rooted in faith
CONGRATULATIONS, HALLELUJAH, OH HAPPY DAY
I WRITE THIS POEM OF LOVE FOR YOU BOTH ON YOUR WEDDING DAY
