Love is eternal.

14: I love you. You are my best friend.

15: Dear hands, tender hands, Touch my face with love Thine to give, mine but to cherish. | Warm eyes, softest eyes, Brush my face with love Thine to give, mine but to cherish. | Fain I wish that I could thank thee more, for these two gifts I can but love thee more, Fain I wish my heart was worthy more. Tender hands, Softest eyes.
16: Benediction Now you will feel no more rain, for each shall be shelter to the other. Now you will feel no more cold, for each shall be warmth to the other. Now you will feel no more loneliness, for each shall be companion to the other. | Now you are two persons, but there is only one life before you. Go, then, to your dwelling place to enter into the days of your life together. And may those days be good and long upon the land which your god has given to you.
17: May the Divine bless this marriage, and may the bond be as permanent as the thousand pieces of a shattered glass! | Judith's Blessing And now it is done. You are husband and wife. May your marriage be a wellspring of strength and joy for each of you, and for the families that are now joined through you.
