557. Blest Be the Tie That Binds

Text: John Fawcett, 1740-1817
Music: Johann G. Nageli, 1768-1836; arr. by Lowell Mason, 1792-1872
Tune: DENNIS, Meter: SM

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 Father'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, 
	our mutual burdens bear; 
	and often for 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.
