Lyrics

Verse 1
Blest be the tie that binds
Our hearts in Christian love;
The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like to that above.

Verse 2
Before our Father’s throne,
We pour our ardent prayers;
Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one,–
Our comforts and our cares.

Verse 3
We share our mutual woes;
Our mutual burdens bear;
And often for each other flows
The sympathizing tear.

Verse 4
When we asunder part,
It gives us inward pain;
But we shall still be joined in heart,
And hope to meet again.
