May he return unscathed
From life’s ills,
Tall, handsome, smiling
To her arms
Leaving the cool air
That chills,
To embrace home’s balms.

May life for them
Be happy, long and full.
And all their hours
Be anything but dull.
And if, by chance, she
Forgets to say,
How much he’s loved
At home and far away.

Let him know how dearly
His wife cares
So that her feelings surround
His days.
If he should find himself unawares
Thinking of their many tender ways.

May prayers between them
Reach the aim
And peace so precious to us
All sustain,
This privilege, this wondrous
Gift, though poor,
These lovers find they are so
Thankful for.
