Hymn using same tune: #615 (Tune 1)


Blest be the tie that binds

Our hearts in Christian love;

The fellowship our spirit finds

Is like to that above.


Before our Father's throne,

We pour our ardent prayers;

Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one —

Our comforts and our cares.


We share our mutual woes;

Our mutual burdens bear;

And often of each other flows

The sympathizing tear.


When we asunder part,

It gives us inward pain;

But we shall still be joined in heart,

And hope to meet again.


From sorrow, toil, and pain,

And sin we shall be free;

And perfect love and oneness reign

Through all eternity.
