Ring I Wear


The ring on my finger is a vow and a bond
That I and my soul belongs to someone else
So when I walk in this world or the great beyond
A proof to one and all there will be no one else,
I will never lie or cheat or forsake that pledge
That I made with faith in front of GOD and man
Between my spouse and me there will be no wedge
Created by the devil or any woman or man,
To you my spouse I will make that sacred oath
My eyes or my heart will not pass away from you
From now until the end there will be us both
When I look for love I will see and only find you,
I will give you my promise and I will give you my word
Never could I forsake you for anyone or any other
To deceive or to cheat to be unfaithful will not be heard
As I love and I want you and never will I want no other,
This ring that I wear to you it is my pact
That you and I will always be one together
I will keep that vow as love and that is my contract
We will cling as one and we will always be together,
On top of my lungs to all man and woman I will proclaim
I will be true and honest to my love and my spouse
Then unto GOD in heaven I assuredly will exclaim
As I thank him for letting me love my spouse,
This as I say as a fact and my own guarantee
So forever on my finger I will wear this single ring
My love and my faith and honesty is to you I decree
So on my finger in honesty and truth is shown in this ring.

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
