A love so nearly had gone past
that forms in every lover’s heart:
blind devotion could not see
that you were truly meant for me.

Together ere the chapel day,
foundations in the Lord we lay;
a vision had been shown to thee
in spirit we were meant to be.

The love that bears it to the end,
is love regards man’s closest friend
who set in place a purposed plan,
a love purpose joined hand in hand.

The greatest love the world has seen,
most faithful love that’s ever been;
when God gave us His only Son,
thus love the hearts of men had won!
