170 Blest Be the Tie That Binds
(DENNIS. S. M.)
John Fawcett, 1772 Arranged from Hans G. Nageli
By Lowell Mason, 1845
 

1.Blest be the tie that binds
Our hearts in Christan love:
The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like to that above
2.Be - fore our Father's throne
We pour our ardent prayers;
Our fears, our hopes, our aims, are one,
Our comforts and our cares.
3.We share our mutal woes;
Our mutual burdens bear;
And often for each other flows
The sympathizing tear.
4.When we asunder part,
It gives us inward pain;
But we shall still be joined in heart
And hope to meet again.
5.From sorrow toil, and pain,
And sin, we shall be free,
And perfect love and friendship reign
Thro' all eternity. Amen
