Blest Be the Tie That Binds

Words: John Fawcett, 1782.

Music : "Dennis," Johann Georg Nägeli (1772-1836); arranged by Lowell Mason, 1845

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

 2. Before 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 each other's 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.
