Excerpt from Verse-Tales, Lyrics, and Translations

"For Richer, For Poorer."

Oh, give us of your oil, our lamps go out;
Your well-fed lamps are clear and bright to see;
And, if we go to buy us oil, maybe,
Far off our ears shall hear the jubilant shout,
Behold the Bridegroom cometh, zoned about
With utter light and utter harmony.'
Then leave us

Excerpt from Verse-Tales, Lyrics, and Translations

"For Richer, For Poorer."

Oh, give us of your oil, our lamps go out;
Your well-fed lamps are clear and bright to see;
And, if we go to buy us oil, maybe,
Far off our ears shall hear the jubilant shout,
Behold the Bridegroom cometh, zoned about
With utter light and utter harmony.'
Then leave us not to weep continually
In darkness, for our souls' hunger and drought."

Then turned one virgin of the virgins wise
To one among the foolish, with a low
Sweet cry, and looked her, lovelike, in the eyes,
Saying, "My oil is thine; for weal, for woe,
We two are one, and where thou goest I go,
One lot being ours for aye, where'er it lies."
