Enduring Love



Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the Hoods drown it.
SONG OF SOLOMON 8:7


And o'er the hills and far away
Beyond their utmost purple rim,
Beyond the night, across the day,
Through all the world she followed him.

So deep in luve am I,
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry

None shall part us from each other,
One in life and death are we:
All in all to one another- Ito thee and thou to me!

My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep; the more I give to thee, The more I have, for both are infinite.
