Written for Beth Atkinson and Matthew Robley-Siemonsma, on their wedding.


How sweet, how heavenly is the sight,
When those that love the Lord
In one another’s peace delight,
And so fulfill His word.
When each can feel his brother’s sigh
And with him bear a part;
When sorrow flows from eye to eye,
And joy from heart to heart.

When love, in one delightful stream,
Through every bosom flows,
When union sweet, and dear esteem,
In every action glows!
Love is the golden chain that binds
The happy souls above;
And he’s an heir of Heaven who finds
His bosom glow with love.
