At the alter
I will not falter,
For I—
I spent some part of my life
In contemptuous strife.

Pray heavens above,
Grant me love,
A soul complete
of a man whom I shall meet.

By righteous virtue
I would never hurt you
But lift your spirits
Beyond your limits
And bring you back down
To the steady ground
Because that is my duty,
I am bound

In health and in sickness,
In good times, in bad times.
The heart does not choose,
And love does not lose.

We will never part,
Forever with my heart
I do—
I do love you.
