June 27, 1987

 

Today

 

we stood last night

with each other

laughing

tomorrow too distant for belief

reality surprised  by joy

and then

 

a pause

as you sang of your love

a love from God alone

 

my sister

my brother

before God are you wed

before God you shall live

if He be for you

what can stand against you

 

our God of love

who gave His son

has given you yourselves

serve Him

praise Him

in Him alone is life
