The bond of perfectness.
Col. 3:14.

Swain.

How sweet, how heavenly is the sight,

When those that love the Lord,

In one another’s peace delight,

And so fulfill the word.

2 When each can feel his brother’s sigh,

And with him bear a part;

When sorrow flows from eye to eye,

And joy from heart to heart:

3 When free from envy, scorn, and pride,

Our wishes all above,

Each can his brother’s failing hide,

And show a brother’s love:

4 When love in one delightful stream

Through every bosom flows,

When union sweet and dear esteem

In every action glows.

5 Love is the golden chain that binds,

The happy souls above,

And he’s an heir of heaven that finds

His bosom glow with love.
