Wedding-Hymn

Thou God, whose high, eternal Love
      Is the only blue sky of our life,
Clear all the Heaven that bends above
      The life-road of this man and wife.

May these two lives be but one note
      In the world’s strange-sounding harmony,
Whose sacred music e’er shall float
      Through every discord up to Thee.

As when from separate stars two beams
      Unite to form one tender ray:
As when two sweet but shadowy dreams
      Explain each other in the day:

So may these two dear hearts one light
      Emit, and each interpret each.
Let an angel come and dwell to-night
      In this dear double-heart, and teach!
