Blest Be the Tie That Binds

  1. Blest be the tie that binds
    our hearts in Christian love;
    the fellowship of kindred minds
    is like 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 our mutual woes,
    our mutual burdens bear,
    and often for each other flows
    the sympathizing tear.
  4. When we are called to 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 waits to see that day.
  6. From sorrow, toil, and pain
    and sin, we shall be free;
    and perfect love and friendship
    reign through all eternity.
