To love with a passion unabating
Into a heart that scans the heights, waiting
As a plunge pool longs for the waters above,
To drink in the cascade of unending love.
Waters entwining to flow together
Running the course of a mighty river:
This is the union, the filling, the giving
That turns mere existence to joyously living.
Two bodies, one flesh; two spirits, two souls,
Two lives come together in God's perfect whole.
Yes, this is a promise just waiting to be
When His love builds our love forever and free.
The meaning of marriage: the blending, the bending,
The raw, breathless beauty of love never ending.
