With a kiss of pure steel I pierce the skin 
With a wish it sinks within 
With the red of your blood and the red of mine 
Its flesh SHALL stain as wine 
Our love is greater than we two 
And stonger than our lives 
And though our bodies may decay 
Our love will survive 

With threads of pure silk and scarlet in hue 
I join, in love, we two 
Your life you have offered freely to me 
And mine I give to thee 
The Earth shall hold our lovers wish 
And keep it from the day 
And as the soil grows richer now 
My Love, it shall stay
