1 How beautiful the sight of brethren who agree
in friendship to unite, and bonds of charity;
'tis like the precious ointment, shed
o'er all his robes, from Aaron's head.
2 'Tis like the dew that fills the cups of Hermon's flow'rs;
or Zion's fruitful hill, bright with the drops of show'rs.
when mingling odors breathe around,
and glory rests on all the ground.
3 For there the Lord commands blessings, a boundless store,
from his unsparing hands, yea, life for evermore;
thrice happy they who meet above
to spend eternity in love!
