A'down the sunlit trial of love
Into land of dreams come true
Where tranquil are the skies above
And birds sing ~ just for you!
A'down the trail of Heart's Desire
That leads to happiness
May heaven send it's sweetest gifts
Your future life to bless.
May the sweet tomorrows that are to be
Each be filled with love's own ecstacy
May hopes fulfilled and dreams come true
Make life a thing of joy for you
And as you wend you wedded way through years to be
May each year leave within your heart a happy memory
What holdeth life so dear as this
The wedding Day! Oh, time of bliss!
When flowers waft their sweet perfume
And birds sing joyously in tune
Oh, day of memories! skies of blue!
Oh, day of fondest dreams come true!
May all it's joy,'ere years are spent
But deepen into sweet content
God give you joy through future years,
God give you hope to gleam through tears,
God give you faith, that every day
He'll scatter blessings on your way
God give you happy hearts that sing
And make of life a joyous thing --
God keep your love, unwavering, true,
To light the path ahead for you
No blossom sweet but breathes a prayer
For joy complete unto the air
No silvery bell's clear melody
But that foretells in harmony
The happiness that is in store --
With god to bless thee evermore
And as the hours fade away
Into a memory divine --
God bless thee always, day by day
With happiness for thee and thine.
Even as the radiance of your wedding day imparts
The roseate glow of gladness that fills your happy hearts
So may your future years be bright
With Love's own, steadfast ray
May realized dreams and constant streams of sunshine come your way
Through fame and fortuen may be ours
Fond memory recalls
The happiest of happy hours --
Those spent within the walls
Of home -- how much that one word holds
Of sweetness -- what surcease
From cares of life -- how it enfolds
the heart in perfect peace!
It seems God guardds it from above
through all the passing years
It stands, a hallowed place of love
To bring our joy and tears.
What matters one brief hour of care:
The sunshine seems so near
When we meet life's shadows there
With those we hold most dear.
In seeking happiness, we find,
Wherever we may roam,
It waits -- a gift of love divine,
Within the arms of --Home!
