BRIDE/GROOM, these things I promise I will do That life may grant you am­ple grace Be­cause I love and cher­ish you: I vow to trea­sure what is true That I might touch whom I em­brace: These things I promise I will do. I’ll build a gar­den in your view that with sweet fruit will stone re­place be­cause I love and cher­ish you. I vow to love each day anew, for love must dance through time and space: These things I promise I will do. I vow to make your ter­rors few and then with you those demons face be­cause I love and cher­ish you. And now, as we make one of two, a pas­sage we can­not re­trace, these things I promise I will do be­cause I love and cher­ish you.
