HUNTED: { Wedding Reading – “To My Dear and Loving Husband” by Anne Bradstreet }

“To My Dear and Loving Husband” by Anne Bradstreet

 

If ever two were one, then surely we.

If ever man were lov’d by wife, then thee;

If ever wife was happy in a man,

Compare with me, ye women, if you can.

I prize thy love more than whole Mines of gold,

Or all the riches that the East doth hold.

My love is such that Rivers cannot quench,

Not ought but love from thee, give recompence.

Thy love is such I can no way repay,

The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.

Then while we live, in love let’s so persever,

That when we live no more, we may live forever.

NB – due to references to “Heaven” I would recommend ensuring you have approval to use for a civil wedding first.
