How Much Do I Love You?


How much do I love you?
How long that love to last?
When tears have dried,
We'll lie beside
And contemplate our past.

I give my dedication,
All trust, all faith, my heart.
In solemn vow,
Accept you now
And never shall us part.

So much do I love you,
So long our love to last,
All pains endured,
All illness cured,
Forever holding fast.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
