A Handfasting Covenant

My dear lady
do hear me now,
I'll never forsake thee
in sincerity I do vow.

I will cherish thee forever
till death do we part,
a love I do offer
a gift from the heart.

In purity and honor
I shall stand by your side,
like our hands tied together
shall this marriage abide.

And before this earthen altar
with a canopy of stars above,
our souls shall no longer be two
but become one in true love.

Then together we’ll be thankful
for that which is in store,
a Celtic marriage ordained
to live forevermore.
