Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Behold how good it is And what a pleasing sight

Behold how good it is And what a pleasing sight

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Behold how good it is,
and what a pleasing sight.
When brethren dwell in love
and cordially unite;
When all agree
to act their part
as with one heart
In charity.

2 'Tis like the precious oil
that gave a fragrant smell;
Which pour'd on Aaron's head,
adown his locks it fell;
From whence it shed
along his breast
down to his vest,
And odours spread.

3 Or as refreshing dew
on Hermon's mount distills;
Or like the drops that shine
on Zion's joyful hills.
The LORD on high
there blessing gives,
and bliss that lives
