Hymn using same tune:

#615 (Tune 1)


 1     Blest be the tie that binds

       Our hearts in Christian love;

    The fellowship our spirit finds

       Is like to that above.


 2     Before our Father's throne,

       We pour our ardent prayers;

    Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one —

       Our comforts and our cares.


 3     We share our mutual woes;

       Our mutual burdens bear;

    And often of each other flows

       The sympathizing tear.


 4     When we asunder part,

       It gives us inward pain;

    But we shall still be joined in heart,

       And hope to meet again.


 5     From sorrow, toil, and pain,

       And sin we shall be free;

    And perfect love and oneness reign

       Through all eternity.
