1. Because I love and cherish you,
And want to fill your heart with grace,
These things I promise I will do:

I vow to tell you what is true
That you might know whom you embrace
Because I love and cherish you.

I vow to see your point of view
And paint my portrait from your place:
These things I promise I will do.

And when you must your dreams renew,
I vow to give you ample space
Because I love and cherish you.

I vow to make our battles few
And love the child behind the face:
These things I promise I will do.

And that we might make one of two,
A mystery too vast to trace,
Because I love and cherish you,
These things I promise I will do.

2. These things I promise I will do
That life may grant you ample grace
Because I love and cherish you:

I vow to treasure what is true
That I might know whom I embrace:
These things I promise I will do.

I'll build a garden in your view
That will a world of stone replace
Because I love and cherish you.

I vow to love each day anew,
And dance with you through time and space:
These things I promise I will do.

I vow to keep your worries few,
And with you all your demons face,
Because I love and cherish you.

And now, as we make one of two,
A sacred rite we now retrace,
These things I promise I will do
Because I love and cherish you.
