408. Blest Be the Tie That Binds

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,
each other's burdens bear,
and often for each other flows
the sympathizing tear.

4 One glorious hope revives
our courage by the way,
while each in expectation lives
and longs to see the day--

5 when from all toil and pain
and sin we shall be free,
and perfect love and friendship reign
through all eternity.
