The secret marriage never can be broken 
No earthly church has ever blessed our union 
No state has ever granted us permission 
No family bond has ever made us two 
No company has ever earned commission 

No debt was paid no dowry to be gained 
No treaty over border land or power 
No semblance of the world outside remained 
To stain the beauty of this nuptial hour 

The secret marriage vow is never spoken 
The secret marriage never can be broken 

No flowers on the altar 
No white veil in your hair 
No maiden dress to alter 
No Bible oath to swear 

The secret marriage vow is never spoken 
The secret marriage never can be broken
