Hymn #481: Blest be the tie that binds


Change to large font


1. Blest be the tie that binds
our hearts in Christian love;
the fellowship of kindred minds
is like to that above.

2. Before our Maker's throne
we pour our ardent prayers;
our fears, our hopes, our aims are one,
our comforts and our cares.

3. We share each other's woes,
each other's burdens bear,
and often for each other flows
the sympathizing tear.

4. When we asunder part,
it gives us keenest pain,
but we shall still be joined in heart,
and hope to meet again.

5. The glorious hope revives
our courage on the way:
in perfect friendship we shall live
in God's eternal day.
