With This Ring Vows
With this ring, I give you my promise
that from this day forward
you shall not walk alone.
May my heart be your shelter
and my arms be your home.
May God bless you always.
May we walk together through all things.
May you feel deeply loved, for indeed you are.
May you always see the innocence in my eyes.
With this ring, I give you my heart.
I have no greater gift to give.
I promise I shall do my best. I shall always try.
I feel so honored to call you my life.
May we feel this joy forever.
I thank God.
I thank you.
