Bless This Union

1970's ?

Bless this union
Bless this light
Bless this long awaited night

Cleanse with fire from above
And make it holy with your love
Free us from all earthly vows
Just bring us close together now

Give us each a memory
No man could ever take
And with your fire
Bless the love that we will always make

And with this thing we do
A vow of it we make
For this thing we've chosen to give
This law could never break

Let this precious hour be slow
For love's way we'll never know
And if tomorrow's dawn should say
That it is best to turn away
Asking nothing of our joy
We must simply go.

So let this precious hour be slow
Let this night be slow.
