Two boys, one vow, together

By Nguyenkhanh, Ho Chi Minh, Viet Nam

Merge with me, One vow

We were born children, herald the innocence
We made promises, sealed amongst the Great skies
Crossing scorn and peril and hatred,
Beyond laws and people and pain,
And a voice that says: ‘ I do !’
Waltzing under Mighty heaven, fret not, rejoice!

Merge with me, share my sacrament,
One boy with another, to the Gate of God,
Before the King himself we submit,
Cascading lady Fortune herself in tears...
Shall help two souls ‘twine forever,
For you, for I, and the Lord’s glory!
