Hand in hand, we gazed into
the mirror’s illumining light
and caught reflections of the gift
we realized that night.

Our image upon image upon
image told the story
of what God holds in store for us––
His own, eternal glory.

Bless us to keep the covenants
we’ve made and hold them fast.
Let our image upon image
be reality at last.

©2011 rewritten version for weddings not held in the evening:

Hand in hand, we gazed into
the mirrors, filled with light,
as we beheld the sacred gift
of Abraham’s birthright.

Our image upon image upon
image told the story
of what God holds in store for us–
His own, eternal glory.

Help us to keep the covenants
we’ve made and hold them fast.
Let our image upon image
be reality at last.

One additional temple marriage poem:

Hands, clasped upon the altar’s lace,
reflect the love within each face
that joins, through time in unity,
two souls for all eternity.

Today anointed king and queen
of future realms and worlds unseen,
together, we begin to see
the promise of our destiny.
