  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.

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

  6.    From sorrow, toil and pain,
        And sin, we shall be free,
     And perfect love and friendship reign
        Through all eternity.
