Songs and Their Settings
Marriage Song
By William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 
From ‘The Tempest

JUNO—Honor, riches, marriage, blessing,
Long continuance, and increasing,
Hourly joys be still upon you!
Juno sings her blessings on you.
Earth’s increase, foison plenty,        5
Barns, and garners never empty;
Vines, with clustering bunches growing;
Plants, with goodly burden bowing;
Rain come to you, at the farthest,
In the very end of harvest!        10
Scarcity and want shall shun you;
Ceres’s blessing so is on you.
