This Tie that Binds...A Marriage Poem

This tie that binds
Man cannot see
Nor cut its strands asunder
What God has joined
Will ever be
Until one passes yonder

The sacred promise
Two hearts make
In love’s most holy union
Will form a cord
Man cannot break
By any measure human

Two on earth
Say ‘I take thee’
As hallowed vows are spoken
Two on earth
And God makes three
A cord not quickly broken

This tie that binds
Oh, what great peace
To know man cannot sever
But death, will be
Its sad release
As love lives on forever

This tie that binds
Our grief, our joy
Its tenure will not falter
Though storms refine
But not destroy
The vow made at loves alter

This tie that binds
Man cannot see
Not part its strands asunder
What God has joined
Will ever be
His holy, sacred wonder

 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. 
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Eccles. 12:4

What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. Mark 10:9
