The Measure of my Heart

This little song has been sung at many weddings and civil partnership ceremonies over the years. It works well for womens voices or a mixed voice group. I encourage tenor men to sing the top or bottom part and basses to sing the tune when doing it with a mixed group.

Example of lyrics

The measure of my heart is such that it cannot be compared
With depth of sea or the heat of the sun or the beauty of the moon
Or the brightest of the stars
No silken cloth is rare enough to wrap love in
Nor silver thread a quality that silky wrap to hem
So here’s the measure of my heart, here’s the measure of my heart
