Blest Be the Tie That Binds
Words: John Fawcett, 1782.
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.
