June 27, 1987




we stood last night

with each other


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



To Ellen and Walt VanderWerf; June 27, 1987.
