A Wedding Poem


Gunner & Cindi Gundersen
Fall 2001

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  – Romans 8:38-39

Dear Father, we have been convinced
That neither death, nor life, nor prince-
palities, nor angels, nor
The things that are, nor things in store
For us, nor powers, depth, or height,
Nor anything made by Your might
Can quench Your love which paid love’s cost
And still burns brightly from His cross.

So let our love now be a flame
No floods can drown nor waters tame,
As love between You and Your Son,
Not two together bound but one.
And let our fire be fueled by grace
And by the seeking of Your face.
And let Your glory, worth, and fame
Be magnified by love’s pure flame.

Many waters cannot quench love,
Nor will rivers overflow it.
– Song of Solomon 8:7
