Holy Matrimony

                       "Let us be glad and rejoice,and
                        Give honour to him:
                        For the marriage of the lamb is come,
                        And his wife hath made herself ready." Revelation 19:7

                    I walked down the aisle
                    In the arms of my loving father
                   And stood in front of the priest.
                   Paul was already waiting;

                 "Will you Paul Adams take this woman,
                   Mary Abanikanda to be your lawfully
                   Wedded wife, to love and to cherish,
                   In sickness and in health,
                   For richer, for poorer,
                   Till death do you part" asked the priest.

                Paul answered, " I do."
                It came to my turn,
                I also replied, "I do."
                He blessed the ring
                And declared us
               Husband and wife.

             "God give us Christian homes
               Homes where the bible is
               Loved and taught,
               Homes where the master's will
               Is sought,
               Homes crowned with beauty
               Thy love hath wrought
               God give us Christian homes
               God give us Christian homes." HYMN

              As we sang this hymn,
              The church service
              Came to a close.
              Paul and I walking
              Hand in hand
              Through the doorway.
