Full Text

Behold, how pleasant and how good
That we, one Lord confessing,
Together dwell in brotherhood,
Our unity expressing;
'Tis like the oil on Aaron's head,
The seal of ordination,
That o'er his robes the sweetness shed
Of perfect consecration.

2 Behold, how pleasant and how good
That we, one Lord confessing,
Together dwell in brotherhood,
Our unity expressing;
'Tis like the dew from Hermon fair
On Zion's hill descending;
The Lord commands His blessing there
In life that is unending.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
