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
The glorious hope revives
Our courage by the way,
While each in expectation lives,
And longs to see the day.
