489. Blest be the tie that binds



Lowell Mason, 1832

John Fawcett, 1782;


Blest be the tie that binds

Our hearts in Jesus' love:

The fellowship of Christian minds

Is like to that above.

Before our Father's throne

We pour united prayers;

Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one;

Our comforts and our cares.


We share our mutual woes,

Our mutual burdens bear;

And often for each other flows

The sympathizing tear.

When we at death must part,

Not like the world's, our pain;

But one in Christ, and one in heart,

We part to meet again.

From sorrow, toil, and pain,

And sin, we shall be free;

And perfect love and friendship reign

Throughout eternity.
