The Gift of Marriage Brings Husband and Wife Together in the Delight and Tenderness of Sexual Union and Joyful Commitment to the End of Their Lives.

Reading

From the Song of Solomon: The Lady Jane Fellowes from the Nave

My beloved speaks and says to me: "Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away; for now the winter is past, the rain is over and gone."

The flowers appear on the earth; turtle-dove is heard in our land.

Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. "

The fig tree puts forth its figs, and the vines are in blossom; 19659007] Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is strong death, passion fierce as the grave.
