REJOICING FOR ALTAR DATE
Rejoicing amidst triumphant delight
My heart joins you toward gratefulness’ height
For your altar date of partnership might
With your fervently prayed-for Mr. Right.
I ask God to bless your jubilant flight
From being Miss to Mrs. Lady Bright
As you gladly walk by faith, not by sight
With your man of dreams along wisdom’s light.
My best wishes are coupled with hugs’ tight
Sending you well my warm care of no blight
While the Lord keeps* you in His gracious sight
Blessing you and your marriage day and night.
*Numbers 6:24 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee.
