1 Behold, how good it is,
and what a joy to see,
When brethren with each other dwell
in love and unity.
2 'Tis like the precious oil,
they pour'd on Aaron's head;
Which down his hair and garment flow'd.
and fragrant odours spread.
3 Or as refreshing dew,
on Hermon's mount distills;
Or like the pearly drops that shine,
on Zion's joyful hills.
For there the LORD commands,
and doth his blessing give,
The foretaste of that blessedness
which shall for ever live.
