1 O what a happy thing it is,
and joyful for to see
Brethren to dwell together in
friendship and unity!
2 'Tis like the precious ointment that
was poured on Aaron's head,
Which from his beard down to the skirts
of his rich garments spread.
3 And as the lower ground doth drink
the dew of Hermon hill,
And Zion with his silver drops
the fields with fruit doth fill;
4 E'en so the Lord doth pour on them
his blessings manifold,
Whose hearts and minds sincerely do
this knot fast keep and hold.
