“God in heav­en above please pro­tect the ones we love.
We hon­or all you cre­at­ed as we pledge our hearts and lives together.
We hon­or moth­er-earth — and ask for our mar­riage to be abun­dant and grow stronger
through the sea­sons; We hon­or fire — and ask that our union be warm and glowing
with love in our hearts; We hon­or wind — and ask we sail though life safe and calm
as in our fa­ther’s arms; We hon­or wa­ter — to clean and soothe our relationship -
that it may nev­er thirsts for love; With all the forces of the uni­verse you created,
we pray for har­mo­ny and true hap­pi­ness as we for­ev­er grow
young to­geth­er. Amen.”
