Holy Fellowship

Representative Text

1 Sweet fellowship, thy crystal tide,
Flows joyful in our souls;
Baptized in one, naught can divide,
While heav’nly peace controls.

O brethren, how our spirits blend
In fellowship so dear;
Though sundered far by God’s command,

In floods of blissful light,

That’s pure in heaven’s sight. [Refrain]

3 O fellowship, my brethren dear,

How blest the seal of union here
With all the saints above! [Refrain]

4 This fellowship with Father, Son,
And all who love the Lord,
Is heaven here on earth begun,
’Tis Paradise restored. [Refrain]
