3 APRIL 2017
This day, each year, recalls the happiest time
That ever I have known in all my life,
A day when chapel bells began to chime
Proclaiming we were joined as man and wife—
Now thirty-five years since, and we’ve come far
And traveled happily along our course,
While led always by heaven’s brightest star.
The Love we learned from our immortal Source,
And even though my health is not the best,
My hopes are high we’ll be together long
And always celebrate how we’ve been blessed,
Which is the purpose of this annual song:
You are my dearest Dear, and may I be
The same to you throughout eternity.
