Kära hustru min, 
vart litet ting, 
var hemmets minsta skiftning 
bär som en doft från själen din.

Och du och vi och tingen 
skulle aldrig blomstrat ut 
i kärlek, som vi gjort till slut, 
om inte du med vigselringen 
skänkt åt oss din jungfrudom.

Djupt ligga livets värden. 
Du anar dem och finner dem. 
Maria gav sin son åt världen. 
Du gav åt oss ett hem.
