BRIDE: I vow to love you all my life,
In sickness and in health,
And share your journey through this world
In either want or wealth.

I vow to give myself to you,
To trust you with my life,
To be your source of happiness
As lover and as wife.

GROOM: I vow to give you all my love,
To be your lasting friend,
To care for you and comfort you
Till time and trouble end.

I vow to share your happiness
And sorrow, joy and tears,
And be for you the one true thing
That lasts through all your years.

BOTH: These vows we make not knowing what
Good times or ill may come,
But knowing well what we both want:
A joyful, loving home.

These vows we make of our free will
Before you all, that we
Might know the grace that comes to those
Who would long loving be.
