Nuptials - Poem by Genevieve Lexow

As openeth the rose, so hath our love
Unfolded to the beauty of this hour.
Hushed silence fills the church, and from above
Amid celestial music, great wings soar.
"What God has joined together" - olden words
Yet new, compel our humble hearts to bow
In gratitude; then rise as singing birds
To heights of rapture only dreamed 'till now.
With clasped hands our lives we consecrate
To joyous service. Valleys and peaks alike
We'll meet with heads erect. The storms of Fate
A marriage more magnificent will make.

Oh, in the sacred beauty of this place
May God have symbolized our love and peace.
