A TRIBUTE TO THE BRIDE AND GROOM.


DEAR friends, we are gathered together,
With innocent hearts, that are light;
Each face is abeam, and meet doth it seem,
As there is a wedding tonight.
A wedding! with love and peace in full bloom;
And a sweet, comely, bride and an exquisite
groom.

Dear friends, we are gathered together,
And happiness leads us tonight;
We follow her star, with nothing to mar,
Through the sweet, dreamy whirl of delight;
And we feel our hearts throb and swell for the
room,
To encompass our hopes, for the sweet bride
and groom.

May this night's love and contentment,
For the happy pair, prove to be,
A nucleus e'er, to enlarge with each year,
As their barque drifts out, in life's sea:
And we wish them many returns of the day,
With peace, love, and happiness, as only
friends may.

Should sorrows e'er darken their pathway,
As oft in our lives, sorrows will,
May they turn to the One, to whom millions
have come,
raster

And each heard His sweet words, "Be still."
And may His blest Presence, forever find room,
In the pure, sweet, abode of the bride and the
groom.
