Apache Wedding Blessing

This Apache wedding prayer is really beautiful. It can be said in place of vows or even added on to a ceremony or as a toast!

Now you will feel no rain
for each of you will be
shelter to the other.

Now you will feel no cold
for each of you will be
warmth for the other.

Now there is no more loneliness
for each of you will be
companion to the other.

Now you are two bodies
but there is only one life
before you.

Go now to your dwelling place
to enter into the days
of your togetherness.

And may your days be good
and long upon the earth.
