LOVERS KNOT

Celebrant: This silken ribbon close entwines two hearts in love together.
Friendship's dearest pledge is made in joy forever.
United you will walk through life sharing Earth's pain and pleasure.
Hand in hand you shall strive for achievement in life together.
Should the path be rough and thorny let love sustain and guide you.
Should the way be strewn with roses let the joy of life sustain you.

Celebrant: Now I tie this lovers' knot you two are joined in oneness. Gentle are the bounds of this union, pull one way and the bonds are strengthened, pull the other way and they are loosened. (Ties silken ribbon around wrists loosely with a bow). Store the knot in a silken purse and it will remain tied forever. (Slide hands apart leaving knot intact).
