How good it is for brethren

Representative Text

1 How good it is for brethren
Who know each other well,
In unity together
On this fair earth to dwell!
In unity together
On this fair earth to dwell!

2 As dew from lofty Hermon
Into the valley flows,
So God upon the brethren
His choicest gifts bestows,
So God upon the brethren
His choicest gifts bestows.

3 And thro' them He reneweth
That city fair and free,
Where souls, by sin polluted,
Shall pure and spotless be.
Where souls, by sin polluted,
Shall pure and spotless be.

4 And all the chosen people
Shall there His face behold
And be with Him forever,
One Shepherd and one fold,
And be with Him forever,
One Shepherd and one fold.
