Esther & Jacques: Aye Ceremony: May 16th 2021

O lady, be calm and cry not but sing to your suitors
Sing to those who guide you and to the discerning passers-by
Sing to the son of Shaka’s people, cast aside your grief and sorrow and distress
O lady be calm, let me give you gifts, fine clothes from our homeland the Hejaz
Let me adorn you with a chain and beads of gold devised in Shiraz
Let me build for you a great white house of lime and stone
Let me furnish it for you with furnishings of crystal,
So that those who see it will be astonished by its construction
Spread beneath with soft rushes from the lakesides of Shaka and Ozi
Let me satisfy your good parents and let them rest at ease with minstrels’ songs;
Let them lie at ease with food of the young of camels and of many oxen, sheep and goats
Because my lady, O lady mine, let me tell you that you are my beloved.
Let me tell you of my love so great that you may see it with your own eyes
Lift up your eyes and see, that everything may be plain to you
Every good thing will I do for you, by the goodness of Almighty God
By His goodness and compassion that shines brightly like the bright moonlight.
