1 Blest be the tie that binds
our hearts in Christian love:
the fellowship of kindred minds
is like to that above.

2 Before the 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 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.
