The cynosure of midnight skies,
Appears but one to seamen's eyes,
Yet twain there are,
And each a star---
Perhaps a sun.

May you, my friends, reverse the view,
And while on earth you look like two,
From Heaven be seen as one;
And like that polar symbol to
A double star of constancy.

"She is thine, the word is spoken,
Hand to hand and heart to heart,
Though all other ties be broken,
Time these bonds will never part,
Thou hast taken her in gladness
From the alters holy shrine,
Oh! remember in her sadness
She is thine and only thine

In so fair a temple never
Aught of ill can hope to come.
Good will strive, and striving ever,
Make so pure a shrine -- home;
Each the other's love possessing,
May that care should cloud that brow;
She will be to thee a blessing,
And a shield to her be thou."
