And landed in our Arms,
With all of Mummy's Sweetness
And all of Daddy's charm

Babies are Angels
That fly to the earth,
Their wings disappear
at the time of their birth.
One look in their eyes

And that part has a name.
That part is your heart
And a bond that won't sever,
Our Babies are Angels,
We love them forever.

VERSE 18 - Wedding

Love is patient, 
Love is kind.
It does not envy,
It does not boast,
It is not proud. 
It is not rude, 
It is not self-seeking,
It is not easily angered,
It keeps no record 
Of wrongs, 
Love does not delight
In evil but rejoices with
The truth. 
It always protects,
Always trusts, always hopes,
Always perseveres.

What therefore God
Has joined together,
Let no man separate.

Single thought
Two hearts that beat as one

May God be with you and Bless you.
May you see your children's children.

Happiness from this day forward.

The Lord is my shepherd
I shall not want.
In green pastures
He gives me repose.
Beside restful waters

Along the right path
For his name's sake.
Even if I walk
In the dark valley
I fear no evil;
For you are at my side

Our father who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in Heaven

But deliver us from evil
For thine is the Kingdom,
The power and glory,
For ever and ever.
