No. 6: When our Shackles are Undone  

MIDI Symbol

Indru.
  When our shackles are undone,
    When I breathe the word,
  Wilt thou have this man, fair one,
    To thy wedded lord?
Beebee.
      I will.
Indru.
  Wilt thou honour and obey him,
Never hoodwink or betray him?
Wilt thou true allegiance pay him?
Beebee.
      I will.
  In sickness and health,
In want and in wealth,
    I take thee for ever and ever.
Both.
  In sickness and health,
In want and in wealth,
    I take thee for ever and ever.

Beebee.
  When the gossip-tongue's astir
    With the Nautch girl's life,
  Wilt thou have this maiden, Sir,
    To thy wedded wife?
Indru.
      I will.
Beebee.
  If unworthy they would make her,
If they ask thee to forsake her,
Wilt thou to thy bosom take her?
Indru.
      I will.
  In sunshine and rain,
In peace and in pain,
    I take thee for ever and ever.
Both.
  In sunshine and rain,
In peace and in pain,
    I take thee for ever and ever.
For ever and ever.
