Ever more strongly, ever more surely,
Two hearts have bonded closer together;
Ever more nearly, ever more dearly
Two cherished spirits clasp one another;
Ever more fondly, ever more warmly
Two souls continue their loving embrace;
Ever more staunchly, ever more calmly,
Hands fold together with fingers enlaced.
So they move onward as time marches forward,
True lovers borne on the river of life;
Not a glance reward, faith is their bollard,
Ever together as husband and wife.
Love is time honored and all is conquered
Whenever hearts join to make the world right;
All eyes turn upward, love is their songbird,
Heaven on earth is their sweet paradise.
Written for Joe and Amy on the eve of their wedding.
