227. Lo, what a pleasing sight

1 Lo, what a pleasing sight
Are brethren that agree!
How blest are all whose hearts unite
In bonds of piety!

2 From those celestial springs
Such streams of comfort flow,
As no increase of riches brings,
Nor honors can bestow.

3 All in their stations move,
And each performs his part,
In all the cares of life and love,
With sympathizing heart.

4 Formed for the purest joys,
By one desire possest,
One aim the zeal of all employs--
To make each other blest.

5 No bliss can equal theirs,
Where such affections meet;
While praise devout and mingled prayers
Make their communion sweet.

6 'Tis the same pleasure fills
The breast in worlds above;
Where joy like morning-dew distils,
And all the air is love.
