I had nonesuch expectation
While whiling my time into spindly threads
That upon your auspicious visitation
We, two, one day would be wed.
Towards a new and brighter morn,
With your warm press upon me.
We are making time and timing our servant
With many pasts shorn.
With life we will move
All of our motions declare
And how in your cove
A new life is prepared.
Take heart, take heed, a blessed re-union
I will laud you, defend you, uphold you;
My life I will lay for you.
We begin our marital communion.
